Jarod Charzewski grew up in the inner city of Winnipeg where the attitudes and esthetics of an urban setting took hold. He also spent time on a family farm in rural Manitoba. This combination of surroundings is where he gained appreciation for natural and manu8factured landscapes. He fuels his art with visuals of change; landscapes and recreates aesthetics that investigate mankind's evolving influence. Artistically he uses these sensations to release ethereality in site-specific experiences.
He holds a BFA from the University of Manitoba (1996) and an MFA from the University of Minnesota (2005). He has received artist grants from several US and Canadian arts organizations including the Manitoba Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts and received a Puffin Award for the environmental content of his work. He has taught sculpture in his hometown of Winnipeg, Canada and Minneapolis/St.Paul, Minnesota. He currently holds the position of Assistant Professor at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina.
