Jordi Machí was born in 1983 in Algemesí where he graduated in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia.

Already from the beginning of his artistic career he had an important international projection since, while studying at the Faculty of San Carlos, he made several stays abroad, first in Venice and later in São Paulo.

Painting would lead him to live in Lebanon and the United States. His works have been exhibited in various countries, among which we can highlight Italy, England, Brazil, Belgium, the United States and Lebanon.

As a result of these periods abroad, in recent years he has received commissions from great “Hollywood” celebrities, has had great recognition within and outside his native Spain, speaks several languages, and, without a doubt, also masters the most international language of all: art.

Inspired by a multitude of references, among which the cartoons of his childhood stand out, he brings to life wicked and ironic representations of popular characters such as Popeye or Tom & Jerry in settings and environments that would hardly be approved by their original creators. In addition, he draws from the influence of a very large number of artists such as Egon Shiele or Norman Rockwell.

In his latest collections, he shows a more intimate and heartbreaking side, that has captivated the media, who consider him among young contemporary Spanish painters with more international projection.

He currently lives between Madrid and Algemesí dedicated to his passion and devotion, art.
