Jorge R. Pombo was born in Barcelona (Spain) in 1973. He studied Graphic Design at the Elisava
School in Barcelona.
At the age of 24, in 1998, he moved to Paris instinctively attracted by the art and history of this city.
In 1999, back again in Barcelona, he began a series of stays in different places of cultural contrast
starting with the Arctic, especially Greenland and Siberia, initially attracted by the frozen landscape
and extreme weather. Later he will do the same in other landscapes such as Tibet or India.
Always moved by a natural anthropological curiosity, in 2010 he moves to New York, seduced by
its chaotic energy. He will reside for almost five years and will deepen in the study of abstract
expressionist painters and, above all, the statements of The Balck Mountain College. In 2015 he
changed residence again to Reggio Emilia, where he currently works.
He exhibits regularly in galleries in Spain, Italy, France, Germany and the United States. He has
also exhibited his work in institutions such as the Wallraf-Richartz Museum (Cologne), the Grande
Museo del Duomo (Milano), La Scuola Grande di San Rocco (Venice) and Can Framis (Barcelona).
