"The past few years I’ve spent much of my time going through my film photos of graffiti, travel and various rich moments in time over the last 30 years. I’ve become obsessed with the attributes that film could capture, the textured emotional quality, saturated colors, unpredictable cropping and natural vignettes. All of these natural filters of film coveted today by the digital era.
With Hence (Vignette) my aim was to visually explore the dual definitions of a vignette in both film and literature. In photography it represents a darker border utilizing a blur or shadow at the periphery of an image while in literature vignettes are rich in imagery to create vivid, detailed descriptions of a moment in time and a character's instant experience."

Jordan Nickel, aka POSE, began making graffiti in 1992. In the years since then, he has expanded his vigorous career to include gallery shows of his mixed-media paintings and works on paper, trips around the world to tag with other graffiti artists, and the cofounding of a creative agency, We Are Supervision, that focuses on large-scale, hand-painted signs and murals. “I’m stoked man, every day is like a freebie right now,” he once said about his career. Inspired by the streets, fellow graffiti artists, cartoons, and pop art, his compositions— whether on a wall or on canvas—burst with bright color, energy, and a pileup of fragmented, overlapping images. Humor meets violence in POSE’s works, which may contain references to crime, cops, and destruction next to images of bananas, melting ice-cream cones, or open sardine tins.
