About Me

Nordacious (James Hillier) is a Brisbane-based visual artist whose pop-art works are inspired by pop culture, Australiana, and social/political commentary. Recent clients include Elton John, Disney+ Australia, Darren Hayes (of Savage Garden), and LIONSGATE.

To date, he has had three solo exhibitions in Brisbane (2016), Sydney (2017) and Melbourne (2018). His solo shows, titled "VIDEO DRAMA" showcased a body of work inspired by the Australian film, Muriel’s Wedding.

Nordacious' illustration of Britney Spears and Cher was shared on Britney Spears' official Instagram account in July 2021.

In November 2021 his work was represented internationally at the COP26 Climate Conference in Glasgow, where an illustration (made in collaboration with satirical comedian Dan Ilic) which drew awareness towards Australia's track record on climate action, was shown across billboards in the region. This artwork was also splashed across NYC's Times Square's largest billboard in the lead-up to the event, which attracted international press.

Nordacious' work was exhibited at 2021 and 2022's Behind the Lines political cartoon exhibition (Canberra, Australia) at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House. 

In September 2022, a piece of Nordacious' was chosen to be used on an official limited-edition CD single cover for the physical release of Elton John and Britney Spears' single "Hold Me Closer".
