About the artist
Cordel was born in New York and is based there. He was born to loving and creative parents, who fostered his artistic expression from an early age. Cordel's work has been shared worldwide and he exhibits his pieces in the US, UK and Singapore.
For New Yorker Cordel, it's all about "La Dolce Vita" or the sweet life. Having drawn markings onto a canvas or directly onto wood, lush colours are used to boldly fill in the outlines. Curvaceous figures accentuated with polka dots and stripes, scribbles and strokes, develop in Cordel's works of revelry. His cosmopolitan compositions offer an exclusive glimpse into the lifestyle of the elitist and his forte lies in his depiction of women; one is immediately charmed by their flirtatiousness and awed by their perfect poise. Cordel's characters seem to come alive with the language of their bodies, conversing through sparkling eyes, batting their lashes and showing off their golden curls. Maintain your gaze and you may even be able to pick up a taunting line or a clink of glasses. Champagne overflows and martinis abound, one cannot help but get intoxicated by the celebration.
