Santos’ neo-expressionist oeuvre, which combines abstraction, text and figuration, draws great inspiration from artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose revolutionary work was among the first to include graffiti and text-based elements as integral components of the composition.
Jorge Luis Santos’s work is as much visual as it is visceral. In his artistry, there is not only form, color, line and a wealth of textured surfaces but also, a free passage of design. With an intuitive exploration of visual language, the artist works using a wide range of materials, delving into abstraction, concrete art, abstract-expressionism, collage, and exploratory techniques in mixed-media art.
