Jonathan Imafidor

Jonathan is an artist living in Atlanta, GA. He was born in Uneme-Nekhua, a small rural settlement in Southern Nigeria. He grew up in a small town amidst a vast expanse of tropical vegetation, rocky mountains, and quiet flowing streams. This influenced his love for nature and how people interacted with it and so he spent his early years investigating and creating art from natural materials. Jonathan earned a Bachelor of Arts in Painting and Masters of Philosophy (African Art) from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife Nigeria and later taught Painting and Drawing as a Lecturer in that same institution. He has over 30 Group and Joint Exhibitions to his credit and he is a recipient of several awards from different local and International Art competitions.

Within the last 6 years, Jonathan has been traversing the great plains of Dakota presenting his art through exhibitions, mural paintings, and art workshops. In his work, nature, culture, and history become visually tangible concepts that represent his ideas and experiences which he has lived or gleaned from his background and in his travels between Africa and America. In recent time, Jonathan’s art has evolutionized into sculpting which has enabled his ideas to spring from a two-dimensional surface onto a three-dimensional reality.

South River Art Studios

Located in East Atlanta along the banks of the South River; our studios offer affordable spaces for artists, designers and other creative professionals. Inhabiting a series of warehouses on 4 acres of converted industrial land, the project mission is to retain and strengthen Atlanta's contemporary art community and help it grow.

Our artists are diverse in their mediums, artistic goals, backgrounds, ages and experiences. This rich mix creates a culture of sharing, support and cross pollination of ideas and work. We believe that artist communities are an integral part of a developing city but are also incredibly beneficial to the artists that are a part of them.

Artists learn, grow and progress from one another’s feedback and critique. This empowers them to strive for more. Artists can explore new outlets for their work through collaboration and we hope to cultivate that kind of environment.
