Jonathan Sanchez Noa

Jonathan Sánchez Noa was born in Havana, Cuba and now lives in Brooklyn. He creates artworks that examine how histories of colonial extractivism have impacted notions of race, identity and climate. He utilizes Cuban tobacco as a medium to reconstruct narratives in relation to socio-ecological resilience. In a current series of papermaking works, he conveys ways of understanding a particular Creole experience that is rooted in ideas of resilience. Jonathan earned his BFA from The Cooper Union in 2020, and attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2023. Recent exhibitions of his work include Vernacular À la Mode at Prizm, Miami, FL (2022); Rastros en el tiempo at The Clemente Center, New York, NY (2022); and KE at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen, Denmark (2021).
