About MeI'm organizing shows, exhibition and live performancies in New York and all around the world, i'm always looking for new faces and models to work with for paintings, body painting and whatever my art brings to me...
I’ve always been experimenting new techniques and medium, subjects and interests, this because I’ve always been affected by the multiple experiences around this globe that would be impossible to reassume without my art. Some of the images I’ve so far represent have got a popular influence, the other productions go in a totally different direction, discovering the pleasure of improvisation and abstract painting applied to every kind of materials and medium: murals, blackboard, vans, bikes, cars, surfboard, body painting and life performances.
My art takes his energy from the people I’m meeting, the music that I’ve been listening to through the art I’ve been inspired from and the places I’ve seen ; they transform my life, my points of view and my approach to art in so many ways, dynamically in a endless process called permanent transformation.

Credits“Using acrylics he creates masterpieces reminiscent of the reindeer’s quality of oil, lighting and metaphors. Jorghe s paintings are pop inspired; every character are treated as an absolute contemporary icon. The subject that animate his pictures are invested by the flaming spirituality of the artist and they are changed up to their energetic nature and elevated to reach their mystical vocation. jorghe discloses the ambition and needs of the consumerist world to rise itself to the highest rank of existence; this need is foreseen in the mythologisation of the pop image, which from a representation of the ephemeral, inexorably aspire to his contrary: the sacred and the eternal. Every symbol possesses the opposite faces of its apparent meaning; with his ability jorghe let them cohabit inside a sole and vibrating system of representation”. – BERLIN VIEW
