Deedee Cheriel

VICE and the creators of Django Unchained selected three of the country’s most exciting and up-and-coming artists to hand-craft a series of limited-edition Creative Recreation sneakers inspired by the film. These one-of-a-kind pieces are being auctioned off and 100 percent of the proceeds are going to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The second artist in the series is LA darling Deedee Cheriel. Punk rocker turned painter, Deedee is known for mixing iconography from Indian temple imagery, South American political art, and animals in the wild to produce mystical narrative paintings.
