Jorge R.Gutierrez, is most notably known for directing/creating the film, The Book of Life & Nickelodeon’s El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera. Jorge was also responsible for the art that made The Book of Life come to life. Check photos from the event below:
Hosted at the Gregorio Escalante Gallery in China Town, Jorge displayed his fantastic paintings in his first solo art show, which he dubbed, “Border Bang“. According to Jorge, his paintings were all inspired by “The cheap knock-offs they sell at the border [. . .]” and took about 2 weeks to complete 1 painting. Each painting was around $2,000.
To better explain his inspiration and art process, here’s Jorge R.Gutierrez:
Check out some of his paintings below, click to enlarge photos:
These were only a few of Jorge’s fantastic artwork. We hope we get to see more of Jorge and his art soon.
I would like to give a special thanks to my photographer, Peter Ortiz, without him, these amazing photos nor the small interview with Jorge would’ve been possible. Thanks Peter!
