Jan Wurm - Time Traveler

Diverse Berkeley artist, Jan Wurm, graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles, and received a Master's degree from the Royal College of Art in London. She creates drawings, paintings, prints and sculptures.

Wurm's work has been exhibited in many galleries, including the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, the Mandeville Art Gallery of the University of California, San Diego, the Newport Harbor Art Museum Art Rental Gallery, and Southern Exposure Gallery, San Francisco. She has taught for the University of California Extension, and the Art Studio of the Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC).

Jan's art embraces so many different styles and techniques that I found it very difficult to choose which work to show you here. I finally decided to upload a random sample from various exhibits and hope that this will entice readers to go to her web site to further inspect her compelling talent.

Jan studied with and was influced by the reknown American abstract painter Richard Diebenkorn and the pop artist Peter Blake.

Wurm draws many of her bold, abstract figures against bare backgrounds with Conté Crayon on gessoed canvas. They have a signature painterly effect filled with emotion that lures viewers to envision a story being told within each piece.

In November, Jan will be participating in a group show at the Rocky Mountain Art & Antiques Show that will be curated by: Albert Wang:
