Jor Smith Michel: “Good, Better, Best. Never let it rest. ‘Til Your Good is Better and Your Better is Best.”

Artist name: Jor Smith Michel

Featured Work 1:


Jor Smith Michel creates works that are both personal and rely on his interpretation of familiar, over-saturated cultural references. I appreciate how he interacts with, re-frames, juxtaposes, and plays with icons and symbols drawn from various striking sources, from comics to celebrated artists, in order to create his own visual language.

Artist Supplied Background:

In adolescence, Jor Smith Michel created drawings for classmates for a dollar. Art came natural and his early commissions inspired him. At 12, Michel painted two 30 ft murals and had a sold out exhibition where everything sold. Then came the hiatus. Dormant from fame and confined to his art studio, after creating a new pedigree, Jor Smith Michel grew to become the artist we know today. Jor Smith Michel, a neo art form; escape clause.
