Jonathan Aller

Jonathan Aller

Minneapolis artist, Jonathan Aller, is one of those multi-talented artists that seems to be adept at creating figurative paintings, ball point drawings, casts, or still life oil paintings. I think his classical art education has served him well.

"He has spent most of his life sketching everything he sees. His passion for sketching and drawing carried into a love for painting. After graduating Ringling College of Art and Design, he traveled to Florence, Italy and studied at the Angel Academy Atelier. It was there he was taught the techniques of the masters. Having been exposed to so many artists, he gained an even deeper respect for painting and its history. "I love painting from life; a portrait, a figure study, or a still life all express my desire to create. I strive to keep true to the subject, while breathing life and excitement in to the painting."

His ball point drawings really showcase his talent in this medium. I'd love to be able to do that!
