Jon Rafman

Jon Rafman’s paintings continue his examination of varying forms of Internet and computer subcultures.  Through depictions of troll dens, computer geeks and technological detritus, Rafman monumentalizes the everyday through large format paintings and photographs.  The resulting works aggrandize the culture that has been created as an outcome of the prevalence of the Internet in our generation.

Rafman’s work has been exhibited at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, New Museum in New York, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis Kunstverein Hannover, Hannover, Germany, and the Saatchi Gallery, London. In 2012 Rafman received a Media Arts Grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
