Spencer Keeton Cunningham – ACCESSION – Interview

Spencer Keeton Cunningham has finally launched a new solo exhibition after 2 years on the road. An artist who set forth over 2 years ago on a self proclaimed painting journey, Cunningham has most recently been painting large walls throughout the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

He has just recently launched his most recent solo exhibit from the road, titled “Accession” at One Grand Gallery in Portland, Oregon.

James Reka – Untold

James Reka is a young contemporary Australian artist based in Berlin, Germany.
