Jordan Sook is a contemporary mixed media artist who works and resides in Toronto, Canada. He began his artistic career in 2015, and has since exhibited in various group shows including the MacLaren Art Centre (2017), the Manifesto Art Festival (2018), and The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery (2018). His body of work ranges from acrylic paintings to sculptures and installations of recontextualized themes in pop-culture. Sook’s distinctive personal style emanates youth and playfulness through colour, line, and form. The work invites us to view the world from a subjective innocence, as we experience a recollection of joyfulness and optimism relating to human infancy.

 

Sook’s latest solo exhibition titled Birth, Death and The Inevitable Loss of Youth (2019) was held at the Toronto Media Arts Centre. The works exhibited explored the potentiality of ready made objects, as well as the readapted depictions of existing icons, drawing inspiration from artists Marcel Duchamp, Robert Rauschenberg, and Mark Rothko. 

 

Currently Sook’s work has transitioned into large-scale installations that explore a range of textures and mediums in conjunction with their environment. Jordan Sook earned a diploma in Business Marketing and Communication from Georgian College.
