Patrick Cunningham (aka Giolla Patraic, my Irish name) has been influenced by a love of art and history to develop a philosophical way of looking at life and the world around him.
Born in Southern California, Patrick knew at an early age what he wanted to do with his life. His childhood passion for history and art ultimately led him to develop the Old Master Style for which he is known. Oil paintings are his primary medium, but portraiture, sculpture and figurative abstraction are also part of his work.
Patrick Cunningham also believes learning is a lifelong pursuit that is essential to one’s growth as an artist. His studies have taken him to Ceri, Italy, a small Tuscan village where he studied fresco techniques under Italian masters, and to France where he studied mural design. Patrick Cunningham’s work resides in numerous private collections across the United States and Europe. To contact Patrick, please call (949) 354-8747 or email email@example.com
