Jordy van den Nieuwendijk (b. 1985), lives and works in the Netherlands. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague in 2011, where he held a funeral and memorial service for his then alter-ego ‘Superoboturbo’.

Through painting, Jordy explores fundamental objects of everyday life. Working with primary colour palettes and simplified shape structures, he has a talent for examining subject matter in series that innovate inside carefully controlled boundaries. While freeing himself from the choice between abstract or figurative image forms, he creates a field of tension reinforced by the timeless character of his work. His tendency towards this style of painting could be described as new purism. He has had solo shows in Rotterdam (Kunsthal), New York (Moiety), and most recently in London (Public Gallery).
