Works by Nalini '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.  Born in the hippie town of Eugene, Oregon, she began her own band and record label at the age of 19.  Influenced by the popular DIY culture of that time, she played in several all-girl bands (Juned, Adickdid, The Teenangels, The Hindi Guns) and co-created the semi-autobiographical film Down and Out with the Dolls. Cheriel has lived and studied abroad: Honduras, Chile, England, Portugal, Spain and her native India, and is now based in Los Angeles.
