Born in 1979 in Mexico, has lived in the U.S.A., Spain and now in Australia.
Jorge Mansilla has been producing art since 1999: exploring various themes such as sexuality, spirituality, our relationship with nature and death.
Being exposed to technology in an exponential manner allowed him to witness the drastic alteration of our lifestyles and the sudden rise of our new cyber worlds and identities. His art results fall in the intersection of figurative and abstract, constantly obsessed with the possibility of making visible the intangible.
He has been producing collages on paper for various reasons: paper represents ancient cultures and for centuries now the triumph of our civilization, it is also a practical and simple material that enables the creation of images whilst more importantly consolidating time and space as a unique physical document.
He has collect and recycle materials because these practices speak about the saturation and overconsumption representative of our times, all this paper and plastic will then shape figures and images that attempt to materialise this overload, the homogenisation and convergence of world trends and the complexity of our emerging status as internet mutants.
His work has been exhibited in Venice, Melbourne, London, Sydney and more.
Most recent works are sculptures made from recycled plastic and are inspired by everyday people, psychological garbage and consumption.
He is also an experienced Art Director and is currently collaborating on video art projects with Sissy Reyes under the name of PURPLE MOUSTACHO.
