Jonathan Marshall


Austin-based artist Jonathan Marshall creates large paintings and drawings that rely heavily on wit, working through color and design. These graphic images explore nature and the landscape through illustrative imagery, showing destruction through absurdity and humor. His success began shortly after his graduation from University of Texas at Austin (2003), and, in 2005 alone, Marshall received the best-in-show award for the Texas Biennial and a feature in New American Paintings. In 2006, he showed with Lawndale Art Center in Houston, plus Art Palace and Okay Mountain in Austin.
