Jonathan Seliger


Jonathan Seliger is a Brooklyn-based artist. He was born in New York in 1955 and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from SUNY Binghamton in 1978. Seliger says that he “wants the viewer to engage the objects on a more universal level” and says that “as in all of my work, I hope that humor and pathos bounce off each other and exist simultaneously.”


His art is form of neo-pop, in which he transforms familiar objects into sculptures that often look like the real thing. Their size…like his eight-foot milk carton…and the materials he uses…alkyds, automotive enamels…belie their actual texture.


Jonathan Seliger has a celebrity cult following with stars like Kanye West. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC, the Jewish Museum in New York, The Panza Collection in Lugano, Switzerland, the Magasin 3 in  Stockholm, Sweden, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and many other prominent venues around the world.
