Emily Rapport

Born in Chicago, IL

A figurative painter based in Chicago, the paintings of Emily Rapport reflect a distinctly American experience and are a direct descendent to the work of the "Ashcan School". Her subjects are familiar urban scenes: El stations, fast-food restaurants, and houses that may have seen better days. Whether working in oils or watercolors, her paintings are more than an objective rendering of her surroundings. Her style and strong sense of narrative imbue the works with a sense of place - a past and a future - that connect with our own memories, experiences and ideas of beauty.

A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Emily also attended The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York. Her work has been exhibited in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles and many pieces have found homes in national and international collections.
