About

Jorge Chamorro (Madrid, 1972) is a graphic designer, collage artist and teacher. Graduated with a degree in Audiovisual Communication in 1995 from Complutense University of Madrid, Jorge worked as a graphic designer in various studios until he became a freelancer in 2005. He discovered collage in 2006, and it has since become for him an irreplaceable artform. His work has been exhibited and published worldwide. In 2010, Jorge began teaching graphic design and collage. He currently holds a position as a lecturer at UDIT University of Design and Technology. Since 2013, he has lived and worked between Berlin and Madrid.
