Part Keith Haring; part Petite Fleur-esque Picasso serigraph; part Memphis, Matisse, computer art and .ai brushstroke/colored marker set; it’s difficult to pin down the unique spirit of Jordy van den Nieuwendijk’s work. When scrolling through it, his prolific range of marks and strokes and virtuosity in blending figure/ground relationships in many mediums is not surpassed by a consistent whimsical attitude and lightness.

He hails from The Hague and he’s collaborated with folks like Colette, The New York Times, Das Magazine, Apartamento and Bloomberg View, creating all kinds of output—from web to print to installation. And his work has been exhibited internationally. Certainly, most have seen it somewhere, but we couldn’t resist looking at it again.
