About the artist

Jordy Kerwick

B. 1982, Melbourne, Australia

 

An outsize and generous character, Australian born Jordy Kerwick lives in a Chateau and former school in the South of France. Inspired by his wife and kids he makes paintings he and they think are awesome; tigers, bears unicorns and snakes, are juxtaposed with his favourite books, still life flowers, trees, nudes, and chief like feather arrangements within folkloric almost fairytale narratives. The paintings are natural, fun, punkish and unapologetic. Vigo will have a solo show for Jordy Kerwick in June 2022.
