Jordy’s work is like jazz: a chaotic, heady blend of motion and freedom delivered with knowing wit, humour and tradition. Most importantly, it’s totally attainable. His palette is instantly recognisable, the primary colours used within it are the first we learn as children and the subjects are things we know and love: people, plants spectacles and curly hair surrounded by shapes we associate with joy: swirls, loops, squiggles, corkscrews, sun.
Tired of making work that by default must be unsigned and anonymous, Jordy spent five years training at the Graphic Lyceum in Rotterdam and had a stint at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Bored with his artistic style, he famously held a funeral and memorial service for Superoboturbo; his alter ego in the back yard of the Royal Academy in order to be reborn creatively and start afresh. Nowadays, Jordy’s becoming one of the most in-demand artists working today.
