Jonni Cheatwood's It Might Be Me exhibition on view November 25 - January 9, 2021.
A creative user of wide variety of materials, Jonni Cheatwood is a painter who mixes oil, oil sticks, acrylics and textile. The canvases are built out of pieces of fabrics, which are unified together almost like a puzzle. Cheatwood’s original inspiration for painting started in graffiti, moving onwards to the action painting of abstract expressionism.
Abstract expressionism has, however, made way for a figurative approach in Cheatwood’s newest series of works. “I came to the point of realization that my abstract works didn’t share much about me personally and I felt that I can tell a greater story of myself and heritage through figurative works.”, he tells.
