Biographical history

Jonathan Monk was born in Leicester in 1969 and lives and works in Berlin. He has a BFA from Leicester Polytechnic (1988) and an MFA from Glasgow School of Art (1991). He studied in Glasgow alongside Douglas Gordon, David Shrigley and Christine Borland, and has known Shrigley (also from Leicester) since they were teenagers. Exploring notions of authorship, Monk is most well known for appropriating the work of other artists and using it for his own purposes. He views true originality as an impossibility, and draws upon material that has already been conceived of as a basis for his own artworks. However, Monk still understands his own work as novel. As he explains, “I always think that art is about ideas, and surely the idea of an original and a copy of an original are two very different things.”
