David Cheer

Cheer was born at Bell's Junction, in the Rangitikei district of the central North Island, but spent all of his artistic life in Canterbury. Self-taught, he worked primarily in pencil and was extremely versatile in that medium, with works that range from spikey landscape sketches to highly detailed flights of imagination. In 1963, Cheer was a guest exhibitor with The Group, alongside Ralph Hotere, Toss Woollaston and Colin McCahon and his works have been reproduced in literary journals such as Landfall, Island and Ascent.
