Jordanna Ber

Editor's note

Jordanna Ber is a Canadian-born artist, who lives and works in sunny Barcelona, Spain. Herbachelor’s degree in Design led her on a professional path of creative roles, initially designing fashion and beauty spreads for magazines, as well as working with brands suchas MTV, Roxy, and Clarins. A wild child at heart, she left Toronto in 2016 to pursue an MBAin the UK, and is now building her art business and dream studio space from an old stone masia in the Costa Brava. At first glance, Jordanna’s coloured pencil pop art realism works appear almost photographic. It’s only upon stepping closer, that the eyes are able to see the pencil strokes and layered blending. Playing with scale and perspective on white backgrounds allows her curated and eye-catching subjects to come to life, jumping from the paper to pull you in. Each original piece takes between 80-200 hours of work. Jordanna’s work can be found in galleries across Europe and North America, with collectorsin London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, New York and Toronto.
