poster for Jorge Rando "Prostitutes"

This event has ended.

Different social problems are reflected repeatedly in Jorge Rando's work themes. "Prostitutes" is one of the main series of the Malaga artist that  speaks about the natural condition of the human being and in which an inconvinient and compromising reality is expressed. The artist shows without condemning, regrets without shocking, that old blight of prostitution that vents on women par excellence. Faces disfigured by brushstrokes, intense colors and structured compositions are some of the characteristics that Jorge Rando uses in "Prostitutes". He achieves through techniques an acid critic on the responsibility of the society while he communicates the audience his spiritual concern about the women he paints.

Although born in Malaga, he feels close to Germany, which culture played a crucial role in his production, thus we can recognize many characteristics of German Expressionism and some of the Abstract American Expressionism. Up to the date, his artwork has been exhibited in national and international galleries of art, Foundations and Museums, and he has also taken part in Fairs of Contemporary Art in Spain, Europe and America. Recently, Malaga has dedicated him two great exhibitions and has inaugurated the first outdoor museum of Malaga with some of his sculptures. The audience may find the precedent of this exhibition in the monographic sample " The ascetic look in painting " in 2010.
