Welcome to the website of John Cunningham, Artist

John Cunningham was born in Lanarkshire, the eldest of a family of seven. He attended the Glasgow School of Art and subsequently held various teaching posts. He was appointed to the Glasgow School of Art in 1967 and became a Senior Lecturer before his retirement in 1985, when he made the decision to devote himself to painting full time.

John lived in a magnificent and spacious studio flat in the centre of Glasgow which was designed by Sir John Burnett expressly for the use of an artist, and which had previously been owned by other artists including John McGhie and David Gauld. It was here, in this unique ambience, that his still lifes were painted and where his landscapes were finished.
