Mayr Studio

A 21st Century American Impressionist

1969 Oceanaire Dr
San Luis Obispo, 93405

Jason Mayr grew up in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas where he was a very intense student in school. At the age of fourteen he developed a deep interest in eastern philosophies. After high school he pursued his study of eastern philosophies in communes and monasteries as well as studying western philosophy at the University of Texas at Arlington.

While in college he had the opportunity to view a private collection of impressionistic paintings at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth. It was there that his interest in art began in earnst. He was awe inspired by the way that the artists were able to create a scene and a mood simply with the juxtaposition of paint.

Shortly thereafter Jason moved to Los Angeles, California where he began to study at the Art Center College of Design and the Art Academy of Los Angeles. But the instruction that he had been searching for was not found until he began studying under master painter Joseph Mendez. Regardless of subject matter, Jason tries to express an emotion rather than tell a story with his paintings. He uses the tools of the painter, color, value, shape and design to accomplish this. He often looks to his heroes, the Russian Impressionists, for inspiration.

Currently, Jason resides in San Luis Obispo, California with his wife Cindy, their daughter Isabella and their dogs Cora & Millie, where his time is divided between painting on location and in the studio. For 4 years straight (2003-2006) he has been voted one of the Best Local Artists, quickly establishing his reputation in San Luis Obispo County. He is now building a national reputation, participating in shows and paint outs across the country. Jason is a member of The Oil Painters of America, The American Impressionist Society and The California Art Club. He has hopes of becoming one of America's preeminent painters, so keep your eyes on him.
