About the Book
Jorge's work reflects a personal journey through realism. There is a strong influence from the Spanish and Italian Baroque period. Old masters that he loves and are always present in his work, as he uses timeless classical painting techniques.
Taking further influence from mass culture and the contemporary art scene, Jorge takes anything visual around him and turns it something personal, despite its origins. Generally working with models though some times invented visions from vernacular feelings.
Open since 2005, LESLIE'S ARTGALLERY is a contemporary art gallery divided in two independent rooms (ESPACE I & II) devoted to showcasing some of the best emerging international artists. The gallery is a meeting place for young artists and art collectors.
