Scott Kahn (born 1946 in Springfield, Massachusetts) is an American painter and draughtsman.  

Kahn’s studio is located in Brooklyn, but his artistic fancy surfaces from a larger subjective and geographical space, one that transcends the material and the immaterial. Kahn pinpoints dream-like testimonies, found in his daytime and nighttime reveries.

Kahn received his BFA from the University of Pennsylvania and his MFA from the Rutgers University. He studied at the Art Students League under Theodoros Stamos and met many of the first generation Abstract Expressionist artists including Mark Rothko.  

Kahn has been the recipient of awards from significant organizations including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in New York City and the Edward Albee Foundation in Montauk, New York. His work is owned by major public collections including the University of Pennsylvania.
