JORGE COLOMBO | ARTIST BIO
A Portuguese-born illustrator, designer and photographer, Jorge Colombo has lived in the USA for more than 20 years, and he has been depicting American urban landscapes ever since. His lushly rendered scenes are currently finger painted from life, on location and using an iPhone, bringing the idea of traditional outdoor easel painting into the 21st century. Regularly released as limited edition prints on 20x200, his images have appeared several times on the cover of The New Yorker. His first cover for The New Yorker, in June 2009, was the first time a smartphone-created image made the cover of a magazine. He has been featured in publications such as the New York Times, 7x7 and the Guardian, and shown on Good Morning America, Fox News and various international outlets.
