Jonathan Rosen received a B.A. from University of Florida and a M.S. from VCU Brandcenter for advertising – launching the next 10 years of his career as an award-winning advertising creative. He later attended NYU’s Film Director’s Intensive Program and transitioned into a commercial director, while founding one of the first hybrid agency/production companies, called Lucky Branded Entertainment.
Needing a creative outlet, Rosen began making art on whim and stumbled upon his future calling. In the three short years since he’s turned art into a career, he’s had exhibitions in NYC, Sydney, Taipei and Paris. In addition to those cities, his work lives in collections in London, Mumbai and Toronto – including a signature piece at The LiveStrong Foundation in Austin. Rosen is also the founder and CEO of Artsparkr (an art-tech startup launching in 2017) that will help artists of all disciplines find sought after career opportunities.
After living overseas in London, Amsterdam and Sydney for most of his adult-life, Rosen pursues his passions in NYC, the city he was born.
