Biography

Jorge Colomina is a painter with a very strong personality. He organises his compositions with powerful gestures. Whether painting straight lines or curves, his brushstrokes are determined, sometimes even explosive. His oils, acrylics, inks and pastels scintillate with colour.

He now combines them all in his work simultaneously to achieve an ever-greater range of chromatic variation, contrast, shading, and textural effects. In a style that is nourished by cubism, the artist asserts his optimistic vision and energy. Always spontaneous, he moves with increasing freedom: free from the fetters of classicism, he pushes back the limits of imposed figures, inventing new forms. His formal harmonies arise from a combination of sultry curves and sharp rectangles. He adds depth to this frenzy of colour, layer upon layer, creating a powerful sense of relief and perspective. Colomina does not stop at the surface, he works on more intimate tones: those that are able to move our inner souls.

Influenced by the world of his masters, especially Picasso, Colomina brings his own ‘Movida’ into the mix. With his taut brushwork, he brings his painterly visions to the canvas. Womanhood remains at the heart of his inspirations and obsessions, while affinities with the Cobra movement can also be detected in his work. Complete creative freedom and a taste for experimentation combine to form bold chromatic associations, while his outlines are drawn with a single stroke and in a single breath. Some of his works, for example Rasta Boule, echo so-called ‘primitive’ art: the faces recall masks and totems – and their descendants in street art (Basquiat, for example).

At sixty years old, Jorge Colomina is still driven by the same passion for painting. He has gained institutional recognition for his work ((the Jewish History Museum of Gerona for his Inquisition series, the Ormesson Cultural Centre, etc.), and has demonstrated the diversity of his talent in galleries and contemporary art fairs in France and elsewhere in Europe. Collectors all over the world have succumbed to the allure of this uniquely gifted artist.
