Ash Mckean (b. 1992, Winchester, England) was born and raised into a military family, and he has lived and worked in London since 2013. Mckean is a self-taught painter who’s work derives from a number of subjects including loneliness, horror, sex and death.

Mckean’s work challenges the timeless themes with which it explores. Through utilising ambiguity as a material, his paintings allow multiple visual and narrative associations. In this way, the bleak, isolated, and personal meshes with the romantic, historical, and mythical.
