“The Rovie”, by artist Jorge Villarreal

Artist Spotlight

Jorge Villarreal

Cothren Contemporary is excited to represent works by San Antonio based contemporary abstract artist, Jorge Villarreal. His bicultural upbringing, as a Mexican-American straddling cultures between McAllen, Texas and Reynosa, Tamaulipas, MX, and his education in architecture, combined with his curious spirit, talent as a photographer, and his love of experiencing other cultures result in his giving otherwise ordinary things, powerful and uniquely beautiful representation. Jorge is fresh off of a stint as a 2019 Blue Star Contemporary art resident in Berlin, Germany. Inspired by the graffiti’d walls of Berlin, his new, playful abstractions are invigorating examples of his ability to extract beauty from the mundane. The full breadth of his work, including works from his 2018 “Sink” series solo exhibition at La Fototeca de Cuba in Havana, are also available in-house with Cothren Contemporary. Please research Jorge’s career and art offerings, via his website: www.jorge-villarreal.com and inquire with jana@cothrencontemporary.com for opportunities to view and collect his work.
