Jorge Narvaez was born in 1955 in Medellin, Colombia. His fervent passion for art started when he was a young child zealously searching books and magazines he would find around his home for paintings and drawings done by the masters.
Jorge studied art at the Escuela de Bellas Artes (School of Art) in Colombia and later became interested in photography because of his attraction to the manipulation and use of light. He often combines painting and photography reproducing his photographs onto canvas and working them in oil and acrylic. Working with different mediums allows him to express different ideas.
A painter, heart and soul, his career has spanned more than 30 years exhibiting his work in his own gallery Galeria Narvaez in Medellin, Colombia, as well as in several countries in Europe, South America and more recently the United States. Jorge’s paintings are known for eliciting commentary and starting conversations.
He currently lives in Naples, Florida with his wife and manager Deborah Gittes Narvaez, who he confesses to be the spiritual impulse for his art.
