Born in the UK in 1986, Alec Cumming was raised on the Norfolk/Suffolk border with a garden that opened onto the gently undulating countryside. Cumming started wandering into this landscape sketching and painting from the age of ten, taking lessons from a local artist who taught him how to work with oil and canvas.

Cumming Studied at Norwich City College where he took a Diploma in Fine Art followed by a BA (hons) in Fine Art from Norwich School of Art and Design (2004 - 2007).

Always actively involved, following two years as Student Union President at Norwich School of Art and Design, Cumming was a founding member of STEW artist studios in Norwich. Cumming now works in Norwich.

Represented by Art 18/21 since early 2009, Cumming has participated in numerous group shows around the UK, hanging work alongside such personalities as John Hoyland, Maggi Hambling and Bruer Tidman. He has also held two solo shows  London's Mayfair. In 2013 Cumming's work was shown for the third consecutive year at the India Art air in New Delhi. As for the future, shows in London and Singapore are forthcoming with a return to his hometown of Norwich at the end of 2013 and a solo show at the Norwich University of the Arts Gallery; a fitting tribute to this young Alumni. We all can look forward to a year of explosive creativity with baited breath.
