Since moving to LA we haven’t seen ALOT of work from Jonathan Zawada in Sydney, but when we do, we get very excited. His work is genius and spans across more mediums than most other artists begin to even touch. His latest show ‘Real 3D’ will showcase his (as the title might suggest) a show full of mostly 3D work.
