Laura Jordan: Crazy Town

7 - 28 November 2015
Conway Street, London

A brilliant draughtsman who works in pencil, pen, watercolour, collage, print and glitter, Jordan is inspired by the greatest cities across the globe. She studied at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design and is qualified in Graphic Design at London College of Communication, University of the Arts, London. Exhibiting in London, New York, Paris and Singapore, and using some of these vibrant cityscapes for her subject matter, she has built an international reputation. Her exquisitely rendered drawings have been shown in important group exhibitions, such as the Association of Ilustrators at the London Transport Museum.

 

 

Mapping the political, social and architectural landscape of modern day urbanity, Jordan’s depictions of the UK, New York, Milan, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Paris and Singapore are characterized by a twist of wit, placing her within the great satirical tradition of William Hogarth and Thomas Rowlandson.
