Spencer Keeton Cunningham – FAREWELL SAN FRANCISCO : A 12 YEAR RETROSPECTIVE AT HERON ARTS

Born in 1983, Spencer Keeton Cunningham grew up in Portland skateboarding and painting from a very young age. Cunningham graduated from the prestigious San Francisco Art Institute. After leaving San Francisco in 2014, the prolific artist began working from the road on a self proclaimed permanent painting tour which took him all over the world including the North and South Island of New Zealand, Tasmania, Melbourne, Sydney, and the outback of Australia. Other countries Cunningham has exhibited and painted in include China, Japan, Ontario, British Columbia, the Yukon, Mexico, The Netherlands, Cuba, Tasmania, Hong Kong, Alaska, The United States, and Hawaii. Coming back to San Francisco to exhibit frequently, Cunningham has remained on tour for over 29 months and is now forced to pack his things and go. – Heron Arts

This is Cunningham’s first ever solo exhibition in San Francisco. Along with his solo works, there will be paintings for sale from his close friends, painting collaborators and roommates: Erlin Geffrard aka Kid Kreyola, Daisy Ortiz, and their son Daylin Geffrard. The four lived together in their house in San Francisco for numerous years and exhibited frequently in San Francisco and abroad, notably in 2013 at the Wenying Highland Art Museum in Guangzhou, China.

Erlin Geffrard: Tell me a little about this show…

Spencer Keeton Cunningham: Basically Erlin, as you know, You and I have been making paintings together and video works which we call video paintings since around 2007. Sometimes it’s hard for people to even tell us apart within the art world. That’s part of what we have been attempting to show in our art since we first met way back around 8 or 9 years ago. And Jaque Fragua has been a fellow art collaborator and friend ever since we started doing shows together in San Francisco around 2008. This show is a culmination of works both solo and collaborative both on video and canvas between all of us.
