Jordi Alós (1993) is a Mexican artist who works from his studio in Mexico city. He studied advertising and design at the Institute of Marketing and Advertising, where he discovered that the limits of "what can be" and "has to be" gave space for human expression.
His works exist in the realm of both realism and art brut, and oftentimes Jordi combines elements from both worlds in his works.
Jordi himself refers to his works as art brut, a term used to catalog the works that go beyond the epistemological plat- form of modernity. More precisely, it is the term that arises to name the works of those producers who are not governed by logos but rather by the body, in other words, producers with mental illnesses. Although the artist has a healthy mind, his art is congenial to art brut at the time that both exist only when the body is placed over reason, as humans did in the period of the emergence of art.
Works of Jordi are in private collections in Dubai, Holland, USA, Mexico, Edinburgh, Spain and Switzerland. Vroom & Varossieau will represent Jordi Alós at Art The Hague in 2022, where we will show a great selection of works from the "Machangos" series.
