Jorge Lourenço

Jorge Lourenço was born in Póvoa de Varzim in 1990. He lives and works in Porto. Bachelor in Painting by the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Porto, has received a scolarship from the Erasmus mobility Program in Latvijas Mākslas Akadēmija, Riga. His work defies the guaranteed and inviolable concepts of conventional painting, through a subtle juggling between aspects such as the canvas, frame shape or color. The consequences of this kind of speech approach the work to a transcendent barrier, although it is a dubious transcendent. He expresses himself mainly through painting and sculpture, showing occasionally since 2011. He’s apparently shy.
