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.
Jeremy Mann, Women, and the City

Dramatically and skillfully rendered, the cityscapes and figurative works of Jeremy Mann give visual form to the emotive essence of modern life.
City streets after dark, the glare of lamplight reflecting off streets slick with rain. The harsh, fluorescent lighting of a city apartment, a late night turning into an early morning. Jeremy Mann’s paintings capture the tenor of these moments that characterize life in the city. Whether depicting the distinctive hills and winding roads of the artist’s own San Francisco, or the bustle of the city that never sleeps, Mann paints the heart of his setting.
