My name is Jordan Collins, I go by the name INV4DER or THE 4TH INVADER. I am an Oakland, CA native currently residing in Los Angeles, CA.

I am a multidisciplinary artist exploring the overlap between music, film, and Motion Design, and animation. 

Much of my work revolves around the ideas of the Strange, Unknown, and Profound, which are then broken down into iconic and stylized visual metaphors. In many ways, I like to think of these visual metaphors as a visual language that can be used to explore more complex and ambiguous ways of thinking.  I believe that by looking at the relationship between science and superstition one can begin to examine the many universal reoccurring themes, symbols, and questions that we all face in an attempt to explain things much larger than ourselves. Some of my main stylistic influences include old 60s Science fiction, Spirituality/Mysticism, and Everyday life occurrences that can be found in nature. I believe that through creative collaboration with other artists and various mediums I am able to have a greater sense of the world but also as a way to bring people together.
