Jan Schonk took classes at the Academie voor Beeldende Kunst and Technische Wetenschappen in Rotterdam.


From 1925 to 1930, he was a freelance designer at the ceramic bakery Zuid holland. From 1926 to 1930 he designed consumer pottery, vases and pots, (animal) plastics and relief tiles for South Holland. He then designed some animal plastics for Ivora. Then only worked as a graphic designer.

After 1931, Schonk devoted himself entirely to graphic art, which is particularly striking for its urge to compose masses, surfaces, lines and shapes into rhythmic chords. With his woodcuts, lithographs, and etchings Schonk is one of the most important graphic artists of the 20th century.
