About the artwork
Jorge Salas is a Caribbean artist, born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in 1968. Salas began his artistic career at the young age of 16 in a self-taught manner, with a general leaning to the visual arts.Years later, the artist enrolled in the National Fine Arts School in Santo Domingo, where he learned to improve and perfect his works. Salas’ technique features acrylic on canvas; he is able to achieve a mesmerizing effect by using impasto, a thick application of paint that combines all the colors.Jorge Salas’ inspiration comes from the inland of his country, which is studied with varied techniques,referencing people and landscapes, and the culture’s richness. The vibrant colors used, the technique, and, in particular, Salas’ style harmoniously combines children with nature. The artist frames human qualities with everyday routine, finding his inspiration within the deep dark eyes of a humble child or the contagious smile of a teenager. Salas is able to masterfully capture the essence of each sitter as well as the innocent expression in each kid’s face. In each work there is a clear understanding and complicity between the viewer and the sitter’s feelings.Jorge Salas is a figurative artist, in each work, the viewer is able to see the reflection of an empowering light as well as many bright colors that are so typical to the everyday culture of Dominican Republic.
