Hey everyone! My name is Nathan Cordova and I'm an enthusiastic and introspective visual artist living in Oakland, California. Other artists often ask me for advice when it comes to their own projects and most of what I have to share is drawn from my own experiences. Now, I want to take a big leap and create this Patreon to share my artistic process with a bigger audience. Learn from my mistakes and successes as I create limited-edition art objects, original photographs and work toward publishing my first mass trade publication in 2021. I post here once a week and the most recent 6 months of posts is always free to the anyone.

Photographs empower me to explore my own emotional landscape and to engage in a meaningful process of self-understanding. I explore the nuances of my relationship with my father in my ongoing visual art project, “One Man’s Body”

My work often examines my personal experience within bigger themes like: death, rebirth, violent patriarchy, love, choice, masculine vulnerability, parenting, and religious orthodoxy. 


One Man’s Body will take me approximately 3 more years to complete and a lot of resources. This is why I’m turning to Patreon. The first $500 pledged here on Patreon will go directly toward funding the cost of the artist studio I desperately need as my project enters it's final two years.  I will be able to focus an astounding amount of energy on my art with that expense covered! And you can help me out for as little as a dollar a month. It’s awesome!

So what is Patreon? Patreon is a micro-funding platform where supporters of the arts can support artists like me. Think Kickstarter but in smaller amounts and pledged monthly. In exchange you get access to all kinds of cool perks! Like...

My behind-the-scenes Artist's Process Archive that’s available when you pledge $5/month! It's like a weekly blog and the most recent 6 months are always free. On the this blog I want to give you a sense of how I make emotional choices when making art so that you can make more informed choices in your own life and creative process. I want to give you insight into the technical aspects of my process too, from project development, processing, printing, editing, presentation, media and more.


One of my favorite perks I’m offering is the 4”x5” fine art prints (below) from my current project, One Man's Body. I deliver these prints to you annually as two sets of triptychs. That's a total of six prints at the $25/month level.



Just pick an amount you’d like to spend each month and in return you gain access to sweet and inspiring patron-exclusive content (Check out the full list of perks to the right for details) and enjoy the benefits of my undying gratitude. You can change or cancel your support at any time, and you’ll only be charged once a month at the set amount you choose to give.

Thanks for checking out my video, reading through my page, and learning a bit about my work. I really appreciate you!

Goals
$83 of $500 per month
With $500/mo I can finally afford my own artist studio! This will be a crucial step in 2019-2021 as I prepare my project "One Man's Body" for print shows and book publication.
