About the Artist
Jonas St. Michael was born in Canada and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Goldsmiths, University of London and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Concordia University in Montreal. His photographic practice explores the nature of representation and its relation to wider cultural and social contexts. Although his projects are diverse, they share a common theme inasmuch as they attempt to communicate a social reality while addressing the area between truth and fiction in representational imagery.
Jonas St. Michael has exhibited nationally and internationally including OK Harris (New York City, USA), Latitude 53 (Edmonton, Canada) and VU PHOTO (Quebec City, Canada). In 2016, he was an artist-in-residence at the British School at Rome. He has an upcoming solo exhibition at the Shenkman Arts Centre in Ottawa.
