We had the good fortune of connecting with Jordan Thompson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jordan, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I wanted to be able to make a brand that’ll be talked about for hundreds of years to come. It wasn’t just about the money but it was about getting the recognition of my name and letting the whole world know this is me, this is who I am, This is what I do.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art pieces represent my emotions but in a more colorful fashion and theme. Not only does it have a brightness to it but also a dark side to it as well which would make you think about the life around you and the real meaning behind such a colorful picture. My artwork is more colorful and distinct compared to others. I’m excited for what the future holds for me, cause I’ll never know what opportunities will open up. I did a lot of drawing and practice trying to perfect my style for a few years before I actually settled to what I do now. I’m not going to say it was easy but it just took a lot of work perfecting the craft. I’ve learned to get advice from others, to build connections, and get out your comfort zone to do greater things. I want the world to know that’ll I’ll be talked about in the history books soon and I then to be ready for that.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well personally my fave place to go to is Krog Street Tunnel so that’s a number one pick from me. It has beautiful walls of art and it’s just cool to look at. A place I would go to for a great meal is Fellini’s Pizza. Their pizza is so cheesy and delicious I recommend it to everybody.
