Jorge Pombo Exhibition
Bertrand Delacroix Gallery will introduce Spanish painter Jorge Pombo as part of its show Winter Collective Part 1.
Born in 1973 in Barcelona, Spain, Jorge began drawing as a young child and completed his first painting at the age of 20. By age 24, he was painting professionally and in 2000, he had his first solo show in Barcelona. Since then, Pombo has had 18 solo shows and dozens of group exhibitions in countries across Europe, including Spain, Switzerland and Italy.
Pombo has traveled to Greenland, Mexico, Siberia, Tibet, India and many other countries to observe the cultural differences and find subjects for his works. He uses photographs of cities to inspire his works but his paintings are solely oil on canvas. He often incorporates several scenes from various cities layered on top of one another to draw comparisons between the metropolises. In 2013, Pombo moved to NYC where he now lives and works; he also maintains a studio in his hometown of Barcelona.
