Born in Eugene, Oregon, Deedee Cheriel began creating stencil and silkscreen art for punk bands at the age of 16. Always seeking inspiration from other cultures, Cheriel has spent a significant amount of time living outside of America. Her personal exploration of her Indian roots is reflected in the dualistic nature of her work. She has exhibited in group shows at Dirt, New Image Art Gallery, and Track 16 Gallery. Cheriel’s work has been represented at Stall 54, London, David Allen Gallery and Capla Kesting Fine Art, New York, and Fluxco Gallery in Los Angeles. In 2007, Cheriel exhibited a solo show at McCaig-Welles Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.
