Jordan Mullen, MFA ’14
Residence: La Verne, California
Profession: Former Marine, artist
Medium: Acrylic, mixed media
Artist’s Transformation: Before entering the MFA in Visual Art program, Jordan Mullen, a former Marine, said he wanted to glorify God through art by creating a relevant body of work that would be acknowledged in the broader art culture. Working primarily in acrylic and ink, Mullen tackles serious and sometimes dark subjects like human suffering and isolation. “I’m exploring what I have to say, and because I am a Christian, that essential part of who I am comes through in any art form,” said Mullen.
