Jordan Debney is a New Zealand born Australia based artist specialising in illustration, street wear graphics and wood cut paintings.
What started as a creative hobby in the calm scenes of Palmerston North, New Zealand soon became a personal quest to form something bigger than a unique venture — taking ideas from a modern grunge-esque youth that utilises colour and light as a resource rather than a tool and uses them to cast visuals that would be reminiscent of an earlier time where rawness and vulnerability was glorified.
The desire to illustrate and become an artist has always been a hidden pulse in his life, whether it stemmed from his early obsessions over comic books and cartoons, or analyzing the blend of death, colour, illustrative art altogether. It’s no longer a search for genre, but rather an evolving style, appreciating the trials of adulthood at age 29 and letting him and his audience grow into something beyond a young man and his art.
