Bio

 
Jonathan Korotko was born on September 30th in 1992, and grew up in small towns of rural Wisconsin, resulting in his affinity for pick-up trucks, and the smell of diary farms. He loved to explore at an early age and had a curiosity his mother would call “ruthless”. Always wanting to know, learn, and simply understand, question asking was his favorite sport. His imagination acted as the vehicle on the pursuit of obtaining and realizing knowledge. Currently, He is pursuing his MFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) within the Printmedia division with anticipated graduation of May, 2019. Jonathan has exhibited in Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and South Korea. In such spaces as Happy Gallery in Chicago IL, The Chicago Art Department, and CICA Museum of Contemporary Art in Gimpo, South Korea.  Forthcoming in 2019, Jonathan curated an exhibition entitled (dis)comfort zones: Underrepresented and Invisibility in the Institution, which will be held at the Joyce Bliss Gallery at Carroll University in Waukesha, WI. Additionally, Jonathan was the recipient of the George Wang award in 2016.
