Most of my art specializes in surreal, humorous, and oddly-intriguing collage works. I use vintage photographs from all kinds of sources, such as old National Geographic archives, mid-century comic books, autochrome images from the early 1900s, and even Tumblr. To a lesser extent I make glitch art, with techniques like databending, cloning and distortion filters in Photoshop.
"Art doesn't need to be a lord and savior for the world. It can be beneficial and spark social change, or be a call for justice, or have a message to tell. But it's ability to connect our collective unconscious not for a purpose, but just for an entertaining moment, is what I consider its role to be. "
My name is Jordan Wade, and I’m a digital collage artist from Phoenix, Arizona. I go under the name @jordanleewade on Instagram, and as jordanleewadeartwork on Tumblr. Being self-taught, I hope to gain more exposure in the coming future as I improve my craft, whether it be through online/print publications or through exhibitions. My submission to Unvael Journal‘s Fourth Issue was featured on the front page of Ello, and I am currently exploring other prints and online mediums.
