Born in Gardens Corner, South Carolina, Jonathan Green attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He received his B.F.A. in 1982 and continued independent studies in the United States and abroad for the next eleven years. Since his graduation, Green has exhibited annually across the nation and his style and subject matter has earned him international acclaim. Green’s oils are instilled with the sense of life that he knew as a boy growing up in the Gullah community of Gardens Corner. They reflect the interpersonal relationships that he forged with many of the people and events depicted in his images. They reveal his philosophy that an individual cannot be considered apart from his social environment.
