Mitchell Cheesman

Mitchell Cheesman, based on the Sunshine Coast, is beginning his artistic career and the future looks bright. With thoughtfulness and a thirst for knowledge as he immerses himself in the arts, music, literacy and resonating artistic practices, which seem unstoppable at this juncture in his life.

Every painting has a narrative with titles that are abstract, curious but bold and maybe a little poignant. Prose that comes to mind in a split second once the work is completed. With travels afar, literary indulgences, feasts for the eyes and an abundance of all things sensory, the artistic response is waiting to be witnessed. Painting in lush green tropical surroundings, nestled under a quintessential Queenslander, the magic emerges.

Luscious, oozing impastos are recognisable in an instant. With subtle nuances in colour and texture, the florals have melted into the surroundings, the backgrounds become the forefronts. Exciting architectural elements with geometrical edges juxtapose the rounded swathes of oils. Soft, edgy, delicious and bold, relatable and immersible.
