Jon E. Nimetz
Jon E. Nimetz was born in Washington, D.C. in August, 1971. He attended the University of Arizona where he received a BA in Political Science. Nimetz went on to get a Master’s Degree in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute and a Master’s Degree in Secondary Art Education from Loyola Marymount University.
Jon was sponsored by Sharpie and 3M Newell Rubbermaid, where he started the Sharpie Squad, a group of international artists who used Sharpie products in their artwork. Nimetz did product testing and development for Sharpie as well. Jon has been involved in over 30 group shows and has shown individually more than a dozen times.
Nimetz works in all mediums and is unafraid to tackle sensitive sociopolitical issues in his artwork. Currently he is residing in Bethesda, Maryland, teaching high school Studio Art and presently working on a found wood project.
There are plans to return to painting in the very near future. Stay tuned as the site will be posting work regularly.
