If you aren't familiar with the name Luke Chueh, chances are that you've seen his work online or elsewhere. The pop surrealist is known for his macabre artwork, which has been featured in art galleries, on album covers, and in a line of toys. His new book, The Art of Luke Chueh, will be released by Titan Books this week and we've been provided with artwork to share with our readers:

"The eagerly awaited first book from critically acclaimed pop surrealist artist Luke Chueh, THE ART OF LUKE CHUEH presents Chueh's bold and unusual art -- employing minimal color schemes, simple animal characters, and a seemingly endless list of ill-fated situations.

Chueh has enjoyed success in the Lowbrow and Pop Surrealist art movements, and has risen to the forefront of the art scene in LA., featuring at sold-out shows, including the popular Crazy 4 Cult at Gallery 1988, in and around Los Angeles for the past four years. With a dedicated following, some of Chueh's characters have been recreated as a line of toys. Chueh also designed the cover for Fall Out Boy’s album Folie a Deux."

If you like what you see below, the book has over 100 paintings that follow a similar style and theme, including one that Donnie Darko fans should really enjoy. For more information on the upcoming release or to pick it up for yourself, visit (US) or Titan Books (UK).
