Born and raised in the Philippines, the now San Diego-based artist fell in love with dance as his first form of creative expression. Jann Rey performed Filipino folk dances throughout primary school and continues to carry this influence in his more modern contemporary adaptation of the art to this day.

Similar to his dancing style, his paintings are gracefully expressive. Drawn to the perfectly imperfect beauty of nature, Jann Rey’s work is atmospherically raw and powerful. 

When not painting or dancing, the abstract expressionist painter and modern contemporary dancer spends his time promoting health and self-care through a local wellness clinic that he and his husband own.
