Jonny Hirschmugl is an artist/ painter currently living in Petaluma, Ca.
Jonny Hirschmugl continually investigates new ways to “force paint”. With mostly figurative work, he often applies techniques similar to the abstract expressionists, such as Jackson Pollock, who happens to be a great inspiration. Jonny paints like a tree exploding through all of its seasons, in the blink of a camera shutter. If you’ve ever burped and whistled at the same time, you may begin to understand a bit of his personality. Nostalgic, a romantic, and delusional. Jonny’s work encompasses all of these qualities and more.
Jonny was born into art, and grew up expressing himself many different ways. Writing stories, comics, and drawing through younger years, to making music and short films from young manhood on.
