Using an improvisational method, Ammon Rost’s abstract works open a portal to the subconscious and broadcast the hidden self onto canvas. By creating each composition in the moment, Rost allows his paintings take on a life of their own.
Ammon was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan where he attributes Buddhist philosophy ingrained in Japanese culture that taught him the criticality of looking inward. He received his BA at UCLA in painting and has exhibited in LA, New York, and Europe.
