Jason Bard Yarmosky was born in 1987 in New York and began drawing as a child.

Yarmosky pushes the conceptual boundaries of traditional portrait painting and drawing by focusing on aging subjects in contrast to the historical glorification of youth. 

His artistic work, both classically rendered and theatrically composed, examines the complexities of the aging experience and explores questions of memory, time, and mortality revealed in the tension between the physical and psychological transformations endured by his subjects. 

Yarmosky graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 2010. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited and collected Internationally. His work has been featured in numerous publications around the world and is a past winner of the Elizabeth Greenshields Award.

Yarmosky lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
