Sumner, Adrian


A graduate of Liverpool College of Art, Adrian has worked as an Illustrator, Arts Development Officer and Lecturer in various academic and public institutions. Currently he divides his time between painting and exhibiting, lecturing for ‘The Arts Society’ and many other organisations and groups at home and abroad, delivering study courses, study trips and weekends, and cruise-ship lecturing in Art History.


‘My painting is figurative and highly detailed, drawing its inspiration from many periods of history and many artistic sources. It is mythological, symbolic, exotic, erotic, arcane, literary, whimsical, ancient and modern. It refers to games, puns, magic, alchemy, physics, poetry, dreams and visions. It aims to entertain, disturb and resonate.’
