Jorge Queiroz:

Born 1966 Lisbon, Jorge Queiroz lives and works in Lisbon. Graduated from MFA School of Visual Arts New York (1999).

The post-symbolic universe of Jorge Queiroz crosses drawing and painting into a diachronic dialogue in which both artistic practices contaminates and influence each other. His self-fictionalized scenarios are not inhabited by any organization or hierarchy, subverting the relationship figure-background or interior-exterior in an intimate and personal imaginary. It has been a constant in his work the absence a narrative linearity. Queiroz has been developing its own universe; an enigmatic, extravagant and even alchemical one.
