Sean Cheetham: Painting

Born in 1977, California based painter Sean Cheetham has a BFA from the Center College of Design in Pasadena, California where he has also worked as an instructor.

Cheetham’s latest work is on show now at Katherine Cone Gallery in Los Angeles. “Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams”, an ostentatious way of wishing some one the best in life, is an ironic, yet perfect title for Cheetham’s new series of classical, but edgy paintings of the figure. He is a skilled and accomplished draftsman, and his painting approach pays homage to academic painting traditions. His portraits are striking and are direct portrayals of his subjects, some with a hint of dark humour. Many of his subjects are of lone women wearing elaborate outfits that reveal an abstract level in the details.”
