Jordan Nickel, aka POSE, began making graffiti in 1992. In the years since then, he has expanded his vigorous career to include gallery shows of his mixed-media paintings and works on paper, trips around the world to tag with other graffiti artists, and the cofounding of a creative agency, We Are Supervision, that focuses on large-scale, hand-painted signs and murals. “I’m stoked man, every day is like a freebie right now,” he once said about his career. Inspired by the streets, fellow graffiti artists, cartoons, and pop art, his compositions—whether on a wall or on canvas—burst with bright color, energy, and a pileup of fragmented, overlapping images. Humor meets violence in POSE’s works, which may contain references to crime, cops, and destruction next to images of bananas, melting ice-cream cones, or open sardine tins.
