Johnathan Schultz is defining the future of art, by creating iconic works of art in precious metals and gemstones that communicate the cultural zeitgeist of our times. He is the new iconoclast who rebels against the conforms of the current art establishment to uncover new dimensions and emotions that stir the soul.
At the heart of Schultz’s work is our elemental connection to the earth’s precious materials – exploring our responses, relationships and boundaries.
Most recently, Schultz has been constructing new work within the NFT space. Originally formed as a physical creation prior to being translated to the metaverse, GEM has been created to be a representation of ourselves; a relatable character that can be whatever we want it to be. Unique yet familiar, GEM allows us to project our own emotions onto the gender-neutral figure – which will have endless variations using diverse materials and colours.
