ABOUT THE ARTIST:
My name is Jordan Allen. I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, but I moved to New York three years ago to pursue art. Since my move I have been able to explore my process based on intuition and experimentation. I look back to the old masters for inspiration, and apply their general ideas to my modern approach in order to place Black bodies in spaces that illuminate the internal world that I have constructed to house my inner dialogue. The objective of my work is to scream “I am here” as loudly as possible through color, story, and design.
