Artist Chericka Funderburk has brought a new look to the face of urban neighborhoods through her unique style of Graphic design, Illustrations,and paintings. A combination of Airbrush, graphic designs, illustration and heavy textures in her painting, her paintings have received praise from both art critics and patrons, who describe her work as "one of the unique examples of the contemporary revival of urban art."

When asked about her work Funderburk states, "In my work, I strive to capture the connections between people, place and creativity that creates identity. Where we stop for coffee in the morning, or celebrate an anniversary all become a part of who we are as individuals, neighbors, and community members. By exaggerating the personalities of the people and architecture, I hope to inspire emotions and evoke memories for the viewer; feelings that may go unnoticed or underappreciated in the routine of life. Additionally, I hope that my work makes people think about the importance of the art world, my creativity, and what art signifies in a world that seems to be increasingly individualistic."

Her influences are two of the most famous artist whose works were portrayed in everyday life (Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso). Vincent Willem Van Gogh was a Dutch postimpressionist painter whose work represents the archetype of expressionism, the idea of emotional spontaneity in painting.
