Jonathan Molvik finds inspiration for his paintings wandering through Southern California neighborhoods and open-spaces. His layered paintings depict the interactions between positive and negative, as well as natural and constructed, spaces by looking through, beyond and around forms. Influenced by his study of batik in Indonesia, masking and printmaking methods create layers within his work. He received his B.A. in Studio Art from UCLA, studying under John Baldessari, Roger Herman and Tim Ebner, and his MFA in Visual Arts from UCSD studying under Ernest Silva. Jonathan Molvik lives and works in Southern California.
His artwork is featured in the 2020, Irvine Valley College, Literary Journal, The Ear. He is an exhibiting artist with the Laguna Art-A-Fair Fine Art Festival in Laguna Beach.
