Sean Cheetham


Sean Cheetham is a contemporary oil painter whose training is steeped in traditional portraiture. His remarkable skill at creating rich layers to capture the subtle nuances of his subjects hearken back to the old masters, yet the work is undeniably fresh. He chooses to paint his friends, and very often his wife, and portrays them with a gripping honesty that captivates the viewer. Sean has exhibited at the National Portrait gallery in London in 2005 where he was included in the prestigious BP awards show. He currently lives and teaches painting in Los Angeles.
