✨ Bristolian street artist ✨ Cosmic wizard ✨
Cheba began painting the streets of Bristol in the early 2000's. Shortly after picking up a spray can, he became addicted to painting the city's landscape and has been a long-standing figure in his hometown of Bristol's thriving street art culture.
Cheba has gone on to showcase his work across the World alongside illustrious figures from the world of street art including the 'Crimes of Passion' show at the Royal west Academy of Arts to New York and even The House of Commons. His work has also featured in a plethora of publications including 'Graffiti World', 'The Art of Rebellion', 'Children of the Can' and 'Banksy's Bristol' to name a few.
Cheba's work is heavily inspired by Space, specifically the Hubble Telescope photos. His works depict parts of the cosmos like nebulas and star clusters but because the subject is so otherworldly and unfamiliar it blurs the line between the representational and the abstract. Cheba combines the graffiti staple of spray paint with more traditional medias such as oil, acrylic and ink and in recent years experimenting with resin.
