The Art of NoHo – We want more!
Tiffany Anne Jordan is an artist who has got a lot of talent to offer our NoHo arts community. She was recently commissioned by two of NoHo’s well respected theatres to paint murals. ”NoHo Arts District is my stomping ground and to have my work showcased on its walls was an easy decision,” says Tiffany.
Her work at the Avery Schreiber Playhouse is a take on the Comedy/Tragedy Masks and her Large vertical piece at the Whitmore Lindley is a take on the old fashioned theatre marquee from the 30s and 40s.
”I’ve always been fascinated with warping human faces or breaking them up into geometrical shapes and incorporate a lot of that into my work. The little alien looking dude holding the marquee outside of the Whitmore-Lindley is a good public example of that.”
When asked why theatres and not upscale storefronts or walls? Tiffany responded, “I’m not strictly about painting theatres–let’s make that clear; it just so happens to be my entry way into the world of murals.”
Tiffany is also the creator of “ART IN THE PARK” at the North Hollywood Park. You may have seen the group arriving in white clothes then opening fire on each other with multi-colored water squirt guns to create moving art on one another. “We meet at NoHo Park the last Sunday of every month and the themes/projects change every time. We are an open community and encourage newcomers to bring instruments, their own projects they’re currently working on, as well as friends to partake in our modern-day love-in”.
I guess you can say Tiffany Anne Jordan is a friend of NoHo, doing her part to put a smile on everyone’s face in this one square mile planet we proudly call home.
“North Hollywood has been really sprucing itself up the last few years and I’m excited and proud to be a part of that change.”
