Jonathan Ahn









Biography:
Jonathan Jungsuk Ahn was born in 1977 in Seoul, South Korea, and grew up in the Boston area. At the age of seven, he began studying under Nancy Angell-Rickenbacker, a former student of Pablo Picasso and Oscar Kokoshka, and quickly became her star pupil. He studied with Mrs. Angell-Rickenback until her untimely death in 1998. Jung continued studying art in Paris in the late nineties, taking time out to complete a degree in computer science degree at the prestigious Bowdoin College. During this time, Jung produced a substantial body of work, although much of it was stolen in Nice, France. After several years of traveling the world, Jung settled in San Francisco where he has received his MFA at the Academy of Art University. Jung is skilled in a variety of media, including oil and acrylic paints, charcoal, and pencil, as well as sculpture. He particularly enjoys portraiture and other figurative works. He currently resides in San Francisco, where he divides his time between painting, studying, teaching and doting on his niece, Eloise.
