Since writing a post about portraitist and figurative artist Sean Cheetham in 2008, I still know little more about him than I did then, which wasn’t much.
Still, I’ve gathered what additional resources I can for an update post. His direct, uncompromising portraits have a wonderful sense of presence and personality, as well as a painterly surface and strong compositions.
Cheetham’s website seems largely abandoned in that its single page is linked to a gallery that is a lapsed domain name.
Cheetham is an instructor at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art and there is a brief bio and gallery on their site.
