Bear in Mind The Pawtastic Work of Artist Richard Ahnert

Canine Culture



Dogspite Dot’s, Jerry Underfoot’s & my digging & we do some dog gone pawsome digging believe me, we could find very little about today’s artist other than he works from huMom’s hometown Toronto, Canada & that he has been showing his work both in Canada & the States since 2010. Happy FriYay! CEO Olivia here to pawsent artist Richard Ahnert pawsitively wagnificent bears.

On his Facebook page Richard Ahnert dogscribes himself as, ‘Toronto Based Contemporary Surrealism Artist’. Here is how his biography dogscribes him, ‘Richard Ahnert takes anthropomorphic painting to a new level, lacing it with a quiet, yet unmistakable animism– an abiding kinship between human & animal. He uses the relationship between animals & humans to explore themes of emotion, metaphor, & narrative with a satirical twist. Storytelling, understated humour, & deep reflection are at the heart of his practice.’

Let’s get down to the bone & show you what we sniffed out for you.
