Jonathan FRITZ

Pomfret CT | New York, NY

In 1996, Jonathan Fritz introduced his intricate, artistic style to New York City, where he established his unique combination of tribal art and cartoon graffiti. Much of Fritz’s
work has since been inspired by childhood memories and greatly significant relationships of the artist’s past and present. To say Fritz’s paintings just capture the eye is an
understatement. Fritz’s whimsical and pop-figurative images are brought to life through his unique, textured style of painting. The artistic-emotional range of Fritz’s images
makes for artwork that truly captures viewer’s spirit and the viewer’s heart, a concept that has not gone unnoticed by the contemporary artistic community.

Within just a few years on the scene, Fritz has been commissioned to paint a number of murals, for both private residences and businesses and public space projects. Fritz has painted for several distinctive New York City hotspots, such as the CBGB’s and Limelight nightclub. In 2005, Fritz was a featured artist in Van Der Plas Gallery Review,
an honor that established his international status. He has since exported paintings to England, Turkey, Italy, and Germany. And this past year at home in New York, Fritz was the first artist ever to be issued in Urban Molecule magazine.

Jonathan Fritz not only utilizes his canvas to create elaborate, fantasy-filled dreamscapes for his viewers, but also to create hope and support for various causes he holds close to his heart. Within several years, Fritz has been honored with the invitation to donate paintings for many charitable events benefiting causes such as 2005 Tsunami relief and Hurricane Katrina relief. With the donation of his artwork, Fritz has had the great opportunity to aid 9/11 burn victims at the FDNY Burn Center and to help feed New York City’s gay and lesbian homeless community. Fritz’s artistic donations also helped fund the materials to build 200 new homes in South African Shanty towns. Earlier this year, Fritz journeyed to East New York for Goldman Sachs volunteer day where he, with the help of 300 children, created a five-canvas mural. Fritz has spent years tutoring children with behavioral problems and perhaps one of his most honorable achievements is his use of artwork as a means to help his students find a sense of personal creativity and self confidence.

Through his artwork, Fritz is continuously responding to the world around him. His work continues to grow and change in ever more promising directions. “I think my art communicates with people before they even understand it, which makes me very lucky. I’ll never take it for granted.”
