Jonathan Groeneweg holds a Masters of Fine Arts in Documentary Media from Ryerson University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Calgary. Groeneweg has exhibited within Canada and abroad, teaches at the Ontario College of Art and Design University, and developed a strong community-based arts practice via various educational, artist-in-residence, and outreach programs.
Groeneweg’s ongoing series, The Nature of Urbanity, combines academic research and artistic production in the form of large scale aerial photo-panoramic composites of urban vegetable gardens to expose and explore ‘Nature’ as a product of culture.
