Artist Jonathan Monaghan (born 1986, New York) creates sculpture, prints and animated video installations that challenge the boundaries between the real, the imagined, and virtual. Pulling from wide-ranging sources such as science fiction and baroque architecture, his work evokes collective fears surrounding authority, wealth and technology. Jonathan received his BFA from the New York Institute of Technology in 2008 and his MFA from the University of Maryland in 2011. His work has been exhibited widely, including venues such as: The Sundance Film Festival, The BFI Southbank in London, The Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C., and The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. His work has been featured by The Washington Post, VICE, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and The Village Voice.
