Jonathan Monaghan examines elements of art history and contemporary culture through an interdisciplinary approach. Drawing on a variety of sources ranging from art history to science fiction, his highly-crafted, fantastical works uncover subconscious anxieties associated with technology and consumerism.
His work has been exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions at The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Spazio Ridotto in Venice, and Market Gallery in Glasgow. Group exhibitions include The Palais de Tokyo in Paris, New Frontier at the Sundance Film Festival, Lehman College Art Gallery in New York, Ars Electronica, and Postmasters Gallery in New York. His work has been featured in The Washington Post, VICE, The Wall Street Journal, and The Village Voice.
Monaghan received his BFA from the New York Institute of Technology in 2008 and his MFA from the University of Maryland in 2011.
