Jonathan is a fine art tile and glass mosaic artist living in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. He follows in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, serving on the board of what is now the Delaware Valley University.
Mandell’s talent lies in the implementation of fundamental fine art concerns, such as perspective, color composition, and drawing into the medium of mosaic. Utilizing such materials as glass shards, ceramic tile, semiprecious stones, minerals, mirror, and marbles, Mandell creates wall-mounted panels, which evolve into what he calls, “tactile paintings.”
Known for his public installations at Citizens Bank Park and throughout the area, he has recently completed significant projects at Lankenau Hospital and Adath Israel Temple. In late 2020 he began work for the Breast Center at Bryn Mawr Hospital.
