It is hard to believe that the cute, cartoony animals in Luke Chueh’s ‘Revenge is a Dish’ series are capable of exacting any kind of evil deeds worth retaliating on.

Chueh’s painted series shows sad animals sitting at a table with their cooked counterparts on a plate in front of them; a chicken looks woefully at the fried eggs he was served. Despite the sombre tone of the series, the paintings deliver punchlines with their titles like “I Asked for Scrambled,” and “Revenge is a Dish (Served with Bacon.)” 

The artist creates a dark blend of comedy and art that will have the hearts of meat eaters and vegetarians going out to these adorable animals.
