Paul Cunningham was born in Denver, Colorado 1954. In his youth, he showed an incredible talent as an artist. In the early 90’s, he took the step of becoming a professional artist and devoted himself entirely to painting. He has studied at a number of Denver Art classes over the years, with techniques refined at the Colorado Institute of Art, Red Rocks Community College, and Colorado State University.
As an artist, there is a constant challenge to look at your work differently and closer, to re-arrange images that are memorable. Each painting contains some common themes that are quite primal as an artist and certainly as a viewer such as: color, techniques, textures, and motion. Travel filled my curiosity and determination to express my own journey visually. I have always been attracted to the beauty of the landscape. The variety of colors and textures, nature provides endless inspiration for subjects. My current work grows from these experiences as I explore glazing new techniques attempting to blend many brilliant colors that bring my paintings to life. In June 2016, I settled in the country of Colombia for 2 ½ years. I opened my own gallery, where I was in the company of a great community of painters. In 2019, I relocated to Miami, Florida to continue my journey and passion for art. Many private collectors own my works across the country, Europe, Canada and South America.
