Jorge Pineda's work spans a number of disciplines ranging from installation to video art, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. Influenced by his architecture studies, his drawings of a simple but forceful stroke are freighted with social criticism and irony. Through a peculiar and distinctive drawing style, using mostly pens -Bic, Pilot or Paper Mate- he criticizes the political and social world that surrounds us. His observations on the human condition, always from a satirical and even absurd point of view, make us reflect on that constantly threatened world of childhood. In 2008, he integrates the collective Quintapata along with artists Belkis Ramírez, Pascal Meccariello and Raquel Paiewonsky, their main goal is to increase the international visibility of Dominican art. Their goal of visibility can be considered accomplished in 2013, when they exhibited the video installation DNA at the Venice Biennale.
Born in Barahona and graduated from the Faculty of Architecture at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo, he has received numerous awards and fellowships, among them the Eduardo León Jimenes Prize for installation in 2006, and in 2013 he was selected by the Davidoff Art Initiative to participate in its artistic residency program in Berlin. His works have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world and are part of important collections: Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla and León, Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, Valencian Institute of Modern Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Salamanca. His works have been reviewed in newspapers such as Le Monde and Spain's ABC.
