Jonathan Herrera Soto

Jonathan Herrera Soto approaches printmaking as an act of love through the gesture of translation. He visually articulates relationships between collective memory and historical instances of state-sponsored violence inflicted on politicized bodies by constructing print-based work that echo the lived experiences of those who are no longer with us. Jonathan graduated with a BFA from the Minneapolis College in Art and Design in 2017. Recent solo exhibitions include “All at Once” at Brown University, “In Between / Underneath” at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and “Querida Presencia” at the Duluth Art Institute. He has participated in numerous artist residencies, including Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Yaddo, Kala Art Institute, Santa Fe Art Institute, and Highpoint Center for Printmaking. His work has been featured in BOMB Magazine, Hyperallergic, among other publications. Jonathan is a recipient of the Jerome Hill Foundation Fellowship Grant, Brown University Artist Development Grant, Metro Regional Arts Council Next Step Grant, Santo Foundation Individual Artist Award, Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, and is a current 2021-2023 Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow supporting work towards an MFA in Painting/Printmaking at the Yale University School of Art.
