Sean Cheetham: Classic Portraits of Strange People

Portrait of Chantal Menard

Some lovely portraits by Sean Cheetham, view whose blog can be found here. Cheetham grew up in the Bay Area, pilule and studied painting in Pasadena under Michael Hussar. Similarly to New York painter Steven Assael, see who created iconic portraits of people from the heydey of the nightclub Mother, Cheetham has a gift for presenting alternative-looking people in a very formal, classical way.

    Wow. Now I want to have money for a photography session, some of me alone and some of me with my partners.

    They’re not photography — they’re paintings, aren’t they?
