About Johnathan Roberts

Johnathan Andrew Roberts was born in 1974 in a small town close to Orlando, Florida. He has been painting for more than 25 years, having undertaken diverse artistic projects such as the creation of a 120 m long scroll painting, a surrealist-fantasy exploration of basic universal concepts such as love, war and the interplay of innocence and brutality.

His paintings and drawings have been shown in numerous venues within the United States and Europe, and most of his paintings are in private collections in the United States and Europe.

He is a founder of the Zagreb Art Kolektiv (ZARK), a not-for-profit organization focused on utilizing emerging technologies, particularly those related to mobile internet, as a means of uniting artists, educators, IT specialists and business professionals for cultural, education and community outreach purposes. In collaboration with the Zagreb Museum of Contemporary Art, he facilitates monthly creative workshops for people of all ages and walks of life.

John currently lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia, where he is the director of Sekvoja Centar, a school for arts and languages.
