Joe Cheetham lives and works in Glasgow, UK. His work focuses on figurative painting and its expanded installation, fluidly adapting style and medium to articulate varied moments of human emotion. Expanding on a long-standing interest in club culture and cartooning, his latest paintings mark a shift in medium and focus as Cheetham adopts the versatility of oil paint to produce works that address the physical tension and isolation of contemporary existence.
