Jonah Landor-Yamagata is a painter and draftsman. He grew up in in Berkeley and Oakland, California, and attended Bard College (New York) then UC Santa Cruz (California), where he graduated with a BA in Environmental Studies in 2003.

The main theme of his work concerns tensions between modern life and the natural world, and he is drawn to situations where he notices the two interacting in interesting ways. By taking the time to observe, paint and draw he sees deeper levels of relationship between natural and human-created environments. In addition to his artistic work, Jonah has extensive experience in the nonprofit sector as a program manager and environmental educator. He moved to Berlin in 2012 to concentrate on developing his artistic practice.
