Charles Cathedral (given birth to 17 Dec 1970) is a Uk painter most widely known for his portraits of racehorses.

His commissions consist of many of equine racing's Quality 1 winners including Arc de Triomphe winners Hurricane Work, Dylan Thomas and Zarkava, Globe Champ Goldikova, US Champ Mineshaft, Australian Champ Sire Fastnet Rock and roll, 2011 Melborne Glass Champion Dunaden Grand Country wide Champion Mr Frisk, Cheltenham Platinum Glass Winners Synchronised and Grasp Oats, and Epsom Derby winners Pour Moi and Authorized.Given birth to in Northumberland, Chapel trained at Newcastle University as well as the Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence where he discovered to color using the sight-size family portrait tradition.Because the majority of his work is painted to commission, it really is hardly ever seen on general public display. His one-man exhibitions at galleries in Mayfair in 2005 and 2013 had been both sell outs.Composing in the catalogue of his 2013 display "Even more Afield", Sotheby's chairman Henry Wyndham says: "For me, Church's work bears lots of the hallmarks of a few of the most renowned Uk painters of the first 20th hundred years."Chapel lives and functions in Dorset.
