Jorge Oswaldo is an artist and designer who employs a variety of mediums in his practice. He designs and produces original works using a vector-based format. His ideas are outputted using self-adhesive vinyl, automotive paint, and various printing techniques. His works evolve from a simple idea into frenetically arranged and calculated explosions of shape, line and color. Methodically stitching the tapestry of his own ideas to the familiarity of an ever changing social landscape, he creates work that instantly gratifies the viewer through a seduction of logos and familiar shapes. Through the use of corporate logo modifications, three-dimensional layering, and high-visibility colors, he renders a new definition of what it means to be a hypermodern artist. .
Due to their chromatic bravura and graphic diversity, register and precision, it’s easy to see why his work resonates on so many levels. While a Frank Stella high-relief shows the expertise of the machining shop and hearkens back to the days of inveterate skilled labor, Oswaldo’s grapho-painterly style could only be the works of a mind born in an era of cyber screens and pixels, 3-D imagery and social media
After moving to Los Angeles in 2005, Jorge simultaneously pursued a second career as a graphic artist. Upon landing in Los Angeles, he fell in love with technology and dedicated his first 3 years at Apple, Inc. It was during those 3 years where he cut his teeth as a digital craftsman. In 2008, he later moved into the fashion sector fusing his love for creativity and technology as a Senior Graphic Designer for the streetwear giant Stüssy, Inc. He presently splits his time at Stüssy producing product, designing mainline tee graphics, marketing assets, printed matter, in store POP, and special collaborative projects. His fine art works are created in Los Angeles, CA.
