Sean Cheetham: Oil Painting To achieve accuracy and harmony in his alla prima figure paintings, Californian Sean Cheetham stresses drawing and a system of mixing colors based from “mud” mixtures, as he calls them, that govern shadows, midtones, and highlights.

Stephen Doherty Even though he is not yet 30 years old, Sean Cheetham has already established a strong reputation with art collectors and students in Southern California.

Deitch SWOON’s worlds are often populated by realistically rendered-- and evocatively cut-out-- street people, often her friends and family. Riding bikes, talking on a stoop, going grocery shopping-- these people traverse a cityscape of her own unique invention. Bridges, fire escapes, water towers and street signs create crisscrossing shadows and spaces through which her figures move. Inspired by both art historical and folk sources, ranging from German Expressionist wood block prints to Indonesian shadow puppets, SWOON is a master of using cut paper to play with positive and negative space in a conceptually driven exploration of the experience of the streets. Bohemian Dreams in Digital Art Somewhere between the work of Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam lies the beautifully imaginative art of Alexander Jansson. His digital painting style is full of fuzzy fauna, twisted flora and plenty of stylish victorian houses… all with the dark and mysterious look you would expect in some bohemian’s dream. The deliciously rich and inviting colors beg your eye to explore the many layers of detail: lighted homes on elephants backs, glowing lanterns over shimmering water. It’s a world that looks thrilling and rewarding to inhabit. See Also Reality With a Layer of Dreams Born in Uppsala, Sweden, Jansson now lives and works in Gothenburg where he runs his own design studio, Sleeping House.
