Through pencil, paint or digital mediums, Jordan Stranger communicates the importance of life, culture and acceptance.
His works are deeply rooted in the traditions within contemporary Indigenous culture. As an Oji-Cree individual originally from Peguis First Nation, Jordan uses his life experiences to drive his artistic passions. He obtained his diploma in Graphic Design at Red River College in 2012 and had worked in advertising for almost a decade selling and pitching campaigns to thousands of clients.
Today he continues his work as a full-time self-employed visual artist and graphic designer operating under his own brand, Totem Doodem, and is currently creating a new series of paintings and installations for a future art exhibition titled “Manitou”.
Over the last few years he has held several art exhibitions in Manitoba and has participated in cultural events in Toronto and Oaxaca. His willingness to participate in discussions and sacred Indigenous ceremonies with organizations like Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries, Arctic Co-Op, and Apple, has opened many eyes and ears to what is possible when we talk about Truth and Reconciliation.
