Born in Berlin, the German artist has been working in his birthplace since the dawn of his career. He is a descendant of Hans-Joachim Burgert’s family. Jonas Burgert graduated from the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts in 1996 and continued to study for the postgraduate title under Professor Dieter Hacker therein. Afterwards, he travelled to Egypt for a study journey. Since 1998, he has displayed his art at multiple group exhibitions around the world. In 2003 he attended the painting biennale in Stockholm. Burgert marked a great success when Christoph Heinrich, then Director of Hamburger Kunsthalle, bought his painting for a large state collection. Burgert showcased his art at the exhibition Geschichtenerzähler organised by this institution in 2003. Shortly thereafter, he displayed his works in Saatchi Gallery in London (2006). A gamut of his solo exhibitions in several institutions was launched then: Kunsthalle Tübingen (2010), Kunsthalle Krems (2011), Kestnergesellschaft in Hannover (2013), and the University of Denver, USA. In 2019, Burgert exhibited in the gallery me Collectors Room Berlin together with Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Gerhard Richter, and the same year again when his works were placed alongside Jake & Dinos Chapman, George Condo, and Francisco de Goya. Thomas Olbricht included Jonas Burgert’s works in his collection shortly after the artist was brought into public notice. His greatest exhibition was held in Long Museum West Bund in Shanghai. Paintings by Burgert are today in many public collections, including Burger Collection in Hong Kong, Denver Art Museum in the USA, Rubell Family Art Collection in the USA, and Taguchi Art Collection in Japan. Burgert has been ranked among the 1,000 best artists in Germany.
