Michael 
Cunningham
Artist & Event Host

Born and raised in New York, Michael and his wife Norma, creators of Vision and Sound: An African American Experience, live in Goodyear, AZ. Michael is a Chef and Visual Artist that has been recognized for his work nationally. His work is an exploration of abstract impressionism through texture, color and form.

He works to achieve the perfect balance between form, content, and abstraction. His emphasis on texture and color gives the work an alluring quality. He shared this: “The process of painting has opened the world up to me and given me a powerful tool of communication. I challenge myself to interpret everyday life experiences through a lens of fun and imagination. My motivation to paint is not obsessive but more a way of telling a story. “
