Jonathan Monaghan b. 1986

My work can be seen as a therapy for the uncertain future

American artist Jonathan Monaghan creates prints, sculptures, and video installations. Drawing inspiration from a wide variety of sources, from science fiction to Baroque architecture, he creates whimsical and compelling stories and imagery, while using the most advanced technology that Hollywood professionals and video game designers work with. 

 

His projects were presented at international exhibitions, including solo exhibitions at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Spazio Ridotto in Venice and Market Gallery in Glasgow. Group exhibitions were  at the Hermitage, at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and at the Sundance and Ars Electronica Animation festivals. Monaghan’s work is represented by the bitforms gallery in New York City and also his works can be seen in the public collections of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Washington DC Art Bank Collection.

 

The personal exhibition Trace left by the future in Anna Nova Gallery is the largest project in the history of the artist’s career.
