Louis Stern Fine Arts is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings by Young-il Ahn.
There will be an artist reception on Saturday, September 14 from 5-7 pm.

Born in Gaeseong, Korea in 1934, Young-il Ahn was recognized as a child prodigy from the age of six, when he had his first solo exhibition in Tokyo. The son of an artist father and musician mother, he excelled in both, and wrestled with which to pursue for a career. Ahn is as skilled in piano, clarinet, and cello as he is in oils, and it shows in his measured yet dynamic compositions. The artist commands a palette knife on canvas with the clarity and expressiveness of a master cellist’s bow on the strings, using the instrument like an extension of his spirit.

Young-il Ahn has lived and worked in Los Angeles for over 50 years. His works have been exhibited across California, Chicago, New York, and Korea. He was a US Artist Ambassador to Vienna, Austria from 2002-2005, and in 2017 he became the first Korean-American artist to have a solo show at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
