Jonathan Yubi (b. 1993 in the Bronx, New York) lives and works between Bergenfield, NJ, and New York, NY as a narrative painter working on the themes of identity, labor, and social unrest. His current series, Work i(s/n) Progress, uses construction workers as a central motif, interweaving them into parable-like narratives of contemporary events.
Yubi graduated from Lehman College CUNY with a BFA. He previously attended Memphis College of Art and the University of Central Florida. From 2016-2017 he produced Artborne Magazine, a monthly arts publication in Central Florida. His work has been presented in exhibitions at Anna Zorina Gallery, New York; 17 Frost Gallery, Brooklyn; CityArts Factory, Orlando, among others.
