Deedee Cheriel








Nalini 'Deedee' Cheriel is a visual artist who started out creating record covers and T-shirts for the Oregon music scene in the early '90s. She has lived and studied abroad: Honduras, Chile, England, Portugal, Spain and her native India. She is currently residing in Los Angeles.

'Her work explores narratives that recognize the urgency and conflict in our continuing attempts to connect to the world. With influences derived from such opposites as East Indian temple imagery, punk rock, and her Pacific Northwest natural environment, her images are indications of how we try to connect ourselves to others and how these satirical and heroic efforts are episodes of compassion and discomfort. Bold elements drawn from landscapes - both urban and natural - and pop culture suggest the ability to find commonalities and relationships between ourselves and our surroundings that inevitably confirm our greater humanity and quest for love.'
