Jorge Rodríguez Gerada: How One Artist Has Changed the Face of Barcelona

From Crane.tv

Urban painter, sculptor and creator of monumental land art, Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada is an artist working against the divisive forces that are pulling contemporary society apart.  His most recent mural in Barcelona, called “Panorama”, is a composite portrait that combines features from 10 women in the city’s Sant Martí neighbourhood. The result, an “everywoman”, represents and celebrates the contributions of women to community life.

 

The huge mural – painted on a wall 33 feet across and more than 90 feet high – was part of the Open Walls Conference 2015 and is one of his Identity Series, which he started in 2002 when he moved to Barcelona from New York City.

Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada New Mural In Vitry, France

Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada just completed this brilliant and massive mural somewhere on the streets of Vitry, France.
The intense beauty of Jorge Rodriguez- Gerada’s artwork is heightened by the artist’s obsession with picture surface- Jorge’s pieces are painted directly onto our manmade environment, yet appear to spring forth so organically from the bubbling paint and crumbling brickwork. The artist stresses his artworks should work ‘in harmony with their location.’
