Artspace2Let is a not for profit organisation dedicated to exhibiting new and emerging artists' work in and around Edinburgh.

We know what it's like trying to get a foot on the art-career ladder, so we keep commission charges low, assist with hanging work and help artists to make connections that will hopefully help them to develop a supportive and informed network of contacts - as well as hopefully finding buyers.

Cheetham, John

Cartoons, comics, Disney, graffiti, tattoos, nature and good times are the core influences on my practise. My work is concerned with mass media, greed and consumerism. One running theme throughout my work is that of mankind’s misuse of natural resources to satisfy his own greed. By mashing up and juxtaposing different elements in the works, I am attempting to portray the stimulatory overload we are confronted with on a daily basis through the media, internet, TV, advertising etc. My work utilizes an ever-expanding roster of symbols and characters to evidence factors associated with modern living. These serious subjects are depicted in an often unserious manner, juxtaposing cartoons with real things, keeping things fun allowing the viewer to enjoy, and then reflect. Just like my subject matter my work is always expanding and changing, which I relish as the work keeps moving.
