Jorge Colomina, a beloved artist
Jorge Colomina is a contemporary painter who comes to us from Spain. An avid world traveller, he and his wife, Joëlle Colomina, settled in Nimes several years ago.
Entirely devoted to his art, Jorge Colomina is a talented painter who has had the privilege of making a living from his art for more than 40 years. The famous French auction house Cornette de Saint-Cyr is a great admirer and supporter of his works, which have been shown in the most prestigious art galleries of Paris and other major cities in France and Spain, as well as international art fairs. More than 7,000 of his unique and original paintings have criss-crossed the global art market.
An abstract figurative artist still in love with his native Spain.
Jorge Colomina is a powerful colourist. The dazzling hues of his works reflect the warm climate, cuisine and traditions of his homeland. Favourite themes such as bullfighting, portraiture and women can be shown as symbolically as they are depicted individually as subjects of his portraits. The same goes for the masters whom he admires: Miró, Picasso and many more.
The culmination of an artist's life: opening his very own art gallery.
His muse – who also happens to be his wife – Joëlle, gave him the greatest gift an artist can receive... his own gallery. The By Ca Gallery just opened its doors in June and promises to keep Jorge Colomina at the forefront the Nîmes art scene.
