Jonathan Seliger’s reverence for everyday objects places him squarely in the Pop Art Tradition, with an intricate fabrication technique that calls to mind the West Coast’s finish fetish movement as well as postmodern concern with simulacra.
After graduation of colleage Seliger started his artistic career with an art critique and a freelance curator. In the late 80’s he supported a particular artist at a gallery in New York.
Then he started to reconstruct every day objects to turn into a conceptual artist. His productions are intelligible and iconic, reflected by the essence of pop art in celebrity brand shopping bags, Chinese takeout containers, light bulbs, and milk cartoons.
