about the artist

art of the carolinasAfter receiving degrees from Brevard College and the University of North Carolina, Cunningham resided in Europe for the better part of a year. Based in Lausanne, he spent his time cultivating an appreciation not only for art, but for the cultures and circumstances that inspire it.

When he is not pushing paint on a canvas, Cunningham maintains a career in the commercial arts as a graphic designer, web site developer, and illustrator.

about the work

Cunningham confides, “I’m a people person. Even when my subject matter isn't human, I try to reflect some aspect of humanity in the work. For example, I'll explore relationships between trees as if they were people. A forest may become a dance, a party, or a street scene.”
