Jordan Sokol at work in his studio

Arcadia Contemporary will soon be presenting Jordan Sokol’s debut solo exhibition in Culver City, California. When?

Save the date: November 18! That’s when the renowned Arcadia Contemporary will present its first solo exhibition of original oils by the renowned painter Jordan Sokol. Originally from Queens, New York, Sokol studied and then taught at the prestigious Florence Academy of Art in Italy for more than a decade before branching off to teach in his private studio in Madrid, Spain. In 2014, Sokol was sought out to become the academic director of the Florence Academy’s first U.S. branch, at the Mana Contemporary Art Center in Jersey City, and he continues to hold that position today. Painting exclusively from life, Sokol says, “I like to use portraiture as a way of exploring the psychology behind the human experience.”
