Richard Ahnert’s work is witty and warm, satirical and accessible. His paintings, primarily of animals in a human context, are bursting with narrative – each one a story in the midst of unfolding.
Richard graduated with honors from the Arts York Program at Unionville HS with a Major in Visual Arts and went on to study Computer Design and Technical Illustration at York University and Seneca College, graduating with the Presidents Honor Roll for Highest Academic Achievement. He enjoyed a successful career as a graphic designer before he began exhibiting his personal work 5 years ago.
Richard has exhibited his paintings in shows and galleries in Toronto and New York including The Artist Project and The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. His work has won awards and can be found in private collections and businesses in North America and Europe. Richard works from his home studio in Toronto.
