The Artist

Jorge Posada is a painter, sculptor, print-maker and photographer who lives and works in New York. After his academic training in his native city Medellin, Colombia, he received the prestigious first prize at the National Saloon of Young Art at the Antioquia Museum of Art. Soon after he was invited to exhibit his work in New York City for the first time. 

Posada has earned awards from prestigious institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bogota, Colombia and the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Daytona, Florida. He was awarded a six year scholarship at the Lower East Side Print Shop and an Honorable Mention at Expresiones Hispanas Art tour USA. His artwork was showcased on Channel 13 in the documentary The New Immigrants. He created and painted on site a 1.500 sq ft mural Homage to the Arts at the Ritz Theater in Elizabeth, New Jersey.   

Posada’s art has evolved into a semi-figurative depiction of the body: a cross between figuration and abstraction. He works by series in a mixed-media of charcoal, acrylic and oil on canvas and paper, which address the human form in motion. Posada creates a tension between the fragments of the body which are embedded into colors, textures and carefully applied transparencies, and the compositional structure. He places them in a pictorial geography occupied by arrows which he uses as a metaphor for the action of going blindly in every direction.

In my intention to be part of a collective memory, I use the human form to explore the body and the rituals of violence which are very much present in our global society.” 

Currently Posada divides his time between New York, Medellin and Antwerp, Belgium where he has started a new series of paintings as an homage to the masters from whom he draws inspiration. He is a Board member of LIC Artists and an active participant in LIC Arts Open. His artwork has been published in several art books and is in major private and public collections in the USA, Europe, Japan and Latin America.
