Jonathan Borofsky was born in 1942 in Boston, Massachusetts. His mother was an architect, and his father was a musician. He began studying painting with a professional teacher at age 9, and produced over 30 oil paintings on canvas by the age of 16. He attended Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he studied painting and sculpture and received his BFA in 1964.

He then studied at the Yale School of Art and Architecture in New Haven, Connecticut, where he received his MFA in sculpture in 1966. In the 1970s and 1980s, Borofsky was instrumental in focusing the art world on the idea of ‘installation art’ – that is, art that focuses more on how the entire room or space connects together as a whole, and less on the individual object. His blending of both spiritual and psychological / archetypal images extended the perception of art beyond the existing imagery of pop and minimalism. During that time, his large-scale, interactive, multi-media installations were featured in many solo exhibitions around the world, including at the Museum of Modern Art (1977), the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1979) and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art (1986), as well as a retrospective exhibition originating at the Philadelphia Museum of Art which traveled to the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, the University Art Museum, Berkeley, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (1984 - 1986). After living and working in New York City and Los Angeles for many years, in 1990 Borofsky moved to Ogunquit, Maine, where he began to focus primarily on producing large sculptures for public locations around the world. Over 35 large scale public sculptures have been completed, including the 30-meter tall Molecule Man standing in the middle of the Spree River in Berlin, the 21-meter tall Hammering Man in Frankfurt, and the 30-meter tall Walking To The Sky at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas.

Borofsky continues to live in Ogunquit, Maine, and works in both Maine and Los Angeles. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
