Biography

Jonathan McBurnie

Jonathan McBurnie is an artist, writer and curator based in Queensland. McBurnie completed a PhD at the University of Sydney in 2014, examining the shifting role of drawing in the digital age, emphasizing the discipline’s ongoing tenacity through tactility, adaptability and in response to technology. Over more than two decades of artistic practice, McBurnie has earned a dedicated cult following with his prolific output, keen observational drawing and deadpan commentary of contemporary art. McBurnie has been published in such diverse periodicals as Eyeline, Catalogue, The Lifted Brow, Penthouse, Zine Panique, Trip, The Journal of Asia-Pacific Pop Culture and Sneaky, where he was an editor and contributor. His latest book, Litcomix: Literary Theory and the Graphic Novel, co-written by Adam Geczy, was released in March by Rutgers University Press. Presently the artist is working on his 22nd solo exhibition, and curating several projects for Rockhampton Museum of Art, where he is the director.
