About Us

IAN CUNNINGHAM.ART is a STAFFORD, UK based design studio partnership creating uniquely styled, bespoke artwork, (including large format canvas wall-art), photographic services and artwork-based products to our extensive network of clients. 

Our services are primarily produced to commission for Motorsport teams and the owners, drivers and collectors of exotic road and race-cars. Our constantly expanding and evolving ‘range’ of products also feature other subjects including aircraft and more recently, pets and wildlife.

Ian Cunningham.Art “partnership”, consists of the Company “Founder”, Ian CUNNINGHAM – who has been producing his unique artwork for clients, having been involved in the exotic car, Motorsport and aviation industries for almost 40 years and Gareth BURGESS – a talented Aviation photographer who joined Ian in early 2019 to take over the role of Principal Photographer at most events. As well as his extensive aviation knowledge, experience and client-base, Gareth is also a competent Designer, IT technician and self-confessed “petrol-head”, having owned and driven many powerful cars over recent years.

Our “artwork” is available in various styles and formats, to suit all budgets, from photographic prints and other “merchandise” to large format canvas wall-arts (either as original art or limited-edition prints). Over the years, we have also gathered together an extensive collection of motorsport memorabilia items, mostly signed at the time by well-known and famous names within our industry.  Occasionally, we will also make some of these unique items available for sale to like-minded and discerning buyers.

We have also been entrusted with selling a few special “items” on behalf of our clients. “Watch this space” – all of these “special” items are truly unique and would rarely, if at all, otherwise be offered for sale…

(Please note that due to the value of some of these items, when one is made available to purchase, viewing will be strictly by prior arrangement only, as they are generally kept in secure storage away from the Studio…)

Moving Forwards in 2020 (1?)

“Major plans are shortly to be announced which will make our products and coverage of events in 2020 our biggest ever…!”

Well, that was “the plan”…!  2020 has been, thanks to Covid-19, shall we say “challenging”?

The majority of our expansion plans have effectively had to be put on hold for 12 months – but we intend to make 2021 even bigger (and better!) than we had planned for 2020.  Stay in touch and watch for all our developments!!

Welcome to Ian Cunningham Art – we hope that you enjoy the website as much as we have enjoyed creating the content.
