I was born in Vancouver, B.C. and raised in rural Surrey before it was paved with freeways and strip malls. As a child I was always drawing and as a teenager began designing posters. Inspired by album cover art of the 1960's, I attended the Kootenay School of Art to study graphic design.
"I am a graphic designer, illustrator, and for the past decade have rested on block printing as a flexible means of expression. It is a process that allows me to work without digital interference, specialized equipment, or even electricity." The Village Gallery is proud to exhibit Gordon's block prints, a contemporary art form rooted in an intriguing traditional process.
