Jonas Wood

Jonas Wood (American, b. 1977) is a Los Angeles based-artist. His paintings are most notable for their reconsideration of the golden era of 20th century American painting, drawing fine comparisons to artists such as Edward Hopper. Linda Yablonsky from the New York Times Style Magazine has said that, “Wood has one foot in Modernist cool and the other in vibrant Pop Art.” He paints what is around him in daily life, from basketball players to living rooms, and tries to preserve the beauty he sees in these subjects and share it with the viewer.
