Jonathan Viner (Weiner)
Jonathan Viner (b. June 1976) is an American painter based in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1998. Working primarily in oils, he fuses a deep respect for the tradition and craft of painting with an appreciation for the dynamic pluralism of current art practice. His conceptually ambiguous, precisely articulated hybrids of portraiture and narrative assert the right of the artist to exceed prevailing institutional conventions in pursuit of highly individualized artistic vision.
