About the artist
Jordan Stewart was born in Northampton in 1994.
After leaving Campion School in 2011 he went to Northampton College and completed a Level 3 BTEC in Art and Design which led to him progressing to do a Fine Art BA at Winchester School of Art in 2013, graduating with a 2:1 in July 2016. He's returning there for the 2016-2017 academic year for their Fine Art MA.
Jordan's work looks at complex issues including loss, mental health and politics through the lens of personal experiences. Creating autobiographical work that can be applied to great contexts within society.
His final project of the BA course looked at Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and the way it affects his life. There is currently little known about ARFID at the moment and it's a subject that tends to be dismissed as "just picky eating", when it's so much more... At the time of writing, Jordan has no knowledge of any other artists looking at this particular eating disorder, which adds to the importance of using his work to create a conversation and bring attention to something not well known but devastating for those whose lives it casts a huge shadow over.
Currently he is working on a project to do with the current state of British politics, something still in its early stages but starting to take form.
