I think we are definitely having fun now!

Dark humor permeates this work by Bryan Cunningham...proficient in many skills, Bryan does a great job combining these techniques to create elaborate mixed media constructions. The work alludes to novelty stores and carnivals...the graphics are stylized and simple, aimed at getting its point across, no matter what!

The blue on the top graphics, bottom corners and grenade unify the piece...the oranges and reds in the text and flames contrast and add tension against the green backdrop. There is also a major concern with edges in his work...each area has a different texture and material, but he sews, literally in some instances, these elements together through the consistency of paint application and quirkiness of line quality and rendering...the changes are visual surprises which enhance the overall tension of the works.
