Our Featured Artist this month is
Born in Southern California, his interest in art began early. His parents exposed him to museums, such as The Getty, where he saw his first Rembrandt portrait. (A technique still used by Patrick for commissioned portraits). This was the beginning of his lifelong quest for knowledge, love of art, belief that all knowledge influences art (including history, mathematics, and psychology), and that learning is a lifelong pursuit that is essential to one's growth as an artist.
By the age of 12, Patrick Cunningham was studying oil painting with a private tutor. Thereafter, he continued studies in college and beyond in Italy, Amsterdam, Holland, and France. His reputation as an Old Master painter has led to many years of commissioned portraits, landscapes, sculptures, abstracts, and murals. Patrick is especially enthusiastic about mixing new paint technology with Old Master techniques. To be a painter is to be a chemist. He shows us two extremes: Old Master's works and the abstracts that have been set on fire.
"My world view and philosophy of life are influences by my love and study of art, history, and psychology (especially Carl Jung), through which I have come to believe that we are all connected and need to work together. To this end, I enjoy sharing knowledge and teaching workshops in California, Oregon, and throughout the United States."
