Mitchell Cheesman

Mitchell Cheesman is a Queensland-based emerging artist who works with oil paint to create stunning, vivacious, impasto paintings of still life scenes. Growing up, Mitchell was always told off in school for drawing instead of working, and at the age of 18 decided to start making art seriously. Self-taught, Mitchell’s process and intrinsic and emotional. He draws inspiration from a wide range of contemporary and historical practices, from poetry, music and film.

Of his second body of work, Stolen Flowers from Strangers Gardens, Mitchell says: “It is an honest project of pure observations and ideas I had made while painting this series. Using textured oil techniques brings the still life works back to life, however displayed in a child-like formation, which may sometimes come across as very abstract and expressive. It’s difficult to know what you are truly observing.”

Mitchell lives, paints and writes poetry from his home on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
