About Jeremy Penn
New York-based modern artist Jeremy Penn, was born in 1979 in New York City and studied Fine Art at both the University of Maryland and Pratt Institute. His works have been exhibited internationally and received honors from curators at museums such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Penn’s work is prized within some of the most prestigious modern art collections in the world. In 2014, Refinery29 referred to Penn as an “Andy Warhol x Richard Phillips Hybrid.” Penn’s work explores the initial feelings of a single gaze and the deconstruction of that moment in time. With a heavy emphasis on his subject’s eyes, he creates a seductive power play between the viewer and the art.
