About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

John Eng(er) Cheng (a.k.a. MadebyEnger) is an artist and designer currently living in Southern California. He is a lifelong creator and maker experimenting in a variety of processes, including printmaking, silk screening, drawing, painting, molds making, and photography. Anything that allows him to bring an idea to life.

Primarily through the use acrylics and gouache, he creates paintings that explore and process themes and ideas such as the relationship between humans and objects and their desire to collect; the combination of fantasy and reality, or dream spaces; and identity — his role as a son/husband/father, his faith, his cultural background, and his insecurities/imperfection.

Armor is used as a common motif throughout John’s work as an anchor for the ideas that he explores. Armor as protection both physically and psychologically. Armor against hate, generational expectations and harm, cultural expectations, spiritual belief systems, and self judgement. And at the end of it all, what the lack of armor could imply.
