Jeremy Mann was born in 1979. He holds a Cum Laude BFA from Ohio University and an MFA with valedictorian honor from Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
In his creative practice, Mann aims to imbue his city, San Francisco, with drama, mood, and personality. He paints his immediate surroundings with intimate, dynamic expression. A number of his compositions are inspired by wet pavement that reflects street lamps and neon signs and glitters in the rain.
Painting on medium-to-large scale wood panels, Mann utilizes a number of techniques: staining the surface, wiping away paint with solvents, and applying broad, gritty marks with an ink brayer. He paints with confidence and flair, addressing complex compositions with colors both vivid and atmospheric.
Since his graduation, Mann has received attention from critics and collectors alike. His work recently graced the cover of American Art Collector magazine and has been extensively exhibited in Ohio and California.
"Deeply evocative of the Impressionist masters, Mann’s paintings of modern cityscapes seamlessly blend the old world to the new. His haunting, sfumato-filled images create a sense of timeless, shared experience and blur the delicate line between waking memory and dream."
"Mann’s modern cityscapes are hauntingly beautiful that are visually engaging and creates a sense of living in a dream. I’m a big admirer of this Impressionist master of the 21st century."
