At the busy intersection of Melrose and La Brea, slightly before 7:00 p.m., there was already a line outside Gallery 1988 for the opening reception of Luke Chueh’s show. As the door opened, the crowd quickly entered and headed straight to the cashier to place their orders for a specify exhibiting piece. The prices range from a few thousand dollars to one hundred dollars, making them all pretty affordable and so within minutes at least half of the exhibiting pieces were marked sold.
I snagged Luke before the crowd start to thicken and we spoke about his work and his up coming toy "Possessed" which is being produced by MunkyKing. Like all toy collectors, Luke was anxious in getting Possessed released. However, due to his busy schedule, there have been some slight delays. Nonetheless, we can wait and we WILL wait!!! Thomas Han who had a collaboration piece with Luke and Joe Ledbetter was also present. Now check out the pics below and if you get a chance, swing by Gallery 1988, the show ends on October 4th.
