Richard Ahnert

Richard Ahnert, based in Toronto, takes anthropomorphic painting to a new level, lacing it with a quiet yet unmistakable animism – an abiding kinship between human and animal. He uses the relationship between animals and humans to explore themes of emotion, metaphor, and narrative with a satirical twist. Storytelling, understated humour, and deep reflection are at the heart of his practice. 

Ahnert graduated with honors from the Arts York Program at Unionville HS with a Major in Visual Arts and went on to study Technical Illustration and Graphic Design at York University and Seneca College, graduating with the President's Honor Roll for Highest Academic Achievement. 

He began exhibiting his work in 2010 and has shown in exhibitions and galleries internationally. His work has won awards and can be found in private collections and businesses around the world.
