From an early age art became Jorge's refugium from a turbulent life, where his earliest memories are painted with strife and uncertainty. In the midst of this, he discovered solace through creativity. His background has gifted him with a distinctive lens through which he view life—a pragmatic and logical thinker in pursuit of solutions. This perspective has molded his art and evolved over the years.

Jorge's art spans a diverse range of mediums, from the raw, expressive world of graffiti to the refined techniques of fine art. This dynamic shift in mediums allows him to convey a wide range of emotions and concepts.

His artistic style is characterized by its adaptability. In his early days he embraced the street's vibrancy and energy, incorporating bold colors, dynamic lines, and urban elements into his work. As he transitioned to fine art, Jorge retained a sense of grit and authenticity while embracing more traditional techniques and aesthetics.

His art often explores the intersection of contrasting worlds—poverty and prosperity, chaos and order, and the visceral emotions with the calculated decisions of life. He drawns to the idea of finding harmony in juxtapositions and using art as a medium to bridge these divides. His work conveys a sense of resilience, innovation, and the power of transformation.

Selected Artworks

1- Composed of small screens pretending to show social programming.
2- Composed of three doors, representing our daily choices for indifference, good or bad.
• Most go out into the word each day by way of the door of no intentions - intending neither bad nor good - but when we do so, we invariably return by way of the dark door.
• It's only as we go out into the day through the light door - the door of intending to do good - that we will return by way of the middle door or if our intentions are maintained, through the door of good intentions.

Tree Solitary
Is a composition divided into two distinct sections, each capturing a different aspect of the journey into the heart of Sao Tomé and Principe's culture. It pretends to show what was the coffee plantations unfurl beneath a radiant tropical sun, evoking the vibrant growth and natural beauty of this island. In contrast, reveals the labour-intensive process of harvesting using slavery to work in farm and sex workers. Together, these two parts of the painting tell a story of both the bountiful, idyllic landscape and the human sacrifice that went into producing the world's most cherished coffee.
