Jorge da Cruz

jorge da cruz

Was born in June of 1974 in Lisbon. Based in Berlin. He had his own vocational training in Visual Arts at the renowned A.R.C.O – Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual, from 1991 to 1994. Since then, he has been developing a consistent body of work, most of it created within a model of artistic residence. For a long time, he has been allying his painting to a constant search for new and exciting materials, techniques and media that he can experiment with, and eventually incorporate into his works, manipulating and combining in the hope of getting to new processes and understandings as far as matter is concerned.
