Jorge Pedro Núñez
Jorge Pedro Núñez is an artist whose practice references his art historical past, prompting viewers to find hidden artistic allegories in his work. He observes a collective history in his mixed-media practice, which comprises large-scale sculptures, works on paper, and installations that evoke the avant-garde, popular culture, and high culture. He creates a full cyclical dialogue that provokes the viewer to consider history and past artistic masters that relate to his art, bringing up the notions of longing and memory.
In 2006, Núñez graduated from the Êcole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts, receiving a DNSAP (National Postgraduate Diploma in Visual Arts). In 2009, he participated in the residency program Le Pavillon at Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
