Jordan C Brun was born in the shadows of Motown and has lived in both the Midwest and the Western United States. He began working as a freelance visual artist with a commission for a local entrepreneurs' association at the age of 14. After graduating from Michigan State University with a BFA in Art Education and a minor in Visual Arts, he continued to develop a variety of styles with various media while teaching at the Plymouth Canton Educational Park, an educational campus of over 6,000 high school students where he taught various 2D design programs including Foundations, Painting, Drawing, Mixed Media, and Photography.
Jordan earned his Master's in Art Education from Eastern Michigan University and stayed in Michigan for a few more years, working on a number of independent films and community projects as an art director and artist. In 2012, Jordan moved to Salt Lake City where he continues his work in public and higher education, including work at Canyons School District, Broadview Entertainment Arts University, and the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program. He is a collaborator of Authors and Writers, regularly displays his work in galleries, and completes numerous freelance pieces while donating a number of his works to charitable causes and benefits.
Garish was begun in 2011 and is inspired by pop culture, celebrity, memes, and social media. The series uses references from film, television, and print media; and is created using mixed media, including spray paint, acrylic paint, ink, pencil, and markers.
