You may have seen her work in the Pasadena Weekly, illustrating Ellen Snortland’s popular “Consider This” column.
Now artist Ching Ching Cheng is about to take her work to a higher level, with her paintings “Mother” and “Invisible” set to be displayed from June 4 through 6 at the world-famous Louvre in Paris as part of the Art Shopping art fair.
Cheng, a native of Taiwan who moved to the United States eight years ago and graduated from the Art Center College of Design before moving to downtown LA, was referred to the Art Shopping fair from the Italian artist representation service International Artists Group.
“I was at the Art Center, living in my uncle’s place in San Gabriel, and now I moved to downtown LA,” said Cheng, who also works as a sculptor. Illustrating opinion columns is something new for the budding artist, but, she said, “It’s a fun challenge keeping up.”
