Joel Cunningham

Inspired by Tribal Art, Cubism and Street Art, Joel creates work which is raw in style but refined in its finish. His sculptures are assemblages of curious shapes which create compositions with personality and depth. Joel’s paintings are an amalgamation of styles. Using a mixed media approach, his work expresses emotion with loose drawing and colour coupled with more considered mark making. 

Joel has been a finalist in several major art prizes within Australia and exhibits his work throughout Australia and internationally. 

Living and working in Sydney, Australia. Joel completed his studies at Sydney College of the Arts where he obtained a Bachelor of Visual Arts with First Class Honours. Prior to that he received a Diploma of Fine Arts at Sydney’s Meadowbank TAFE.
