About

Philip Larkin famously loved jazz because it was an art form that needed little to no explanation in order to be enjoyable. 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, automobiles, figures with spectacles and curly hair surrounded by shapes we associate with joy: swirls, loops, squiggles, corkscrews, sun.

Jordy has been churning out work at an impressive rate since 2005, but he actually began much earlier - drawing pictures for the girls in his class until the discovery of graffiti turned him into a part-time criminal and devout artist. 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 organised a funeral and memorial service for his alter ego Superoboturbo 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.

Liv Siddall, London, 2014

Résumé

When not drawing towards a deadline, painting towards an exhibition, or teaching drawing class at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Netherlands, Jordy van den Nieuwendijk (b.1985) is probably playing chess or walking his dog at the beach.
