Joshua von Ammon is a painter currently residing in Dallas, Texas. After receiving his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2009, he lived and worked in Prague, Czech Republic for 4 years, participating in the Meetfactory Artist’s residency. Since moving to Dallas in 2012, he has co-founded S.C.A.B. (socialized contemporary artist’s bureau), the UNION studio + gallery, Conversations in the Void (online artist interview program), and PARIAH (umbrella moniker for arts production and fine art curation within the artists studio+domicile). Von Ammon is foremost a painter but believes admittedly in a DIY approach to enriching and building an artists communion outside the restrictions of the commercial environment. Joshua works with his partner in PARIAH, Frank Darko, as a writer, curator, educator, interview host, and art media producer.
