Jorge Pomar was formed in the early 2000s between graffiti and rave culture. He is co-founder of the publishing house Bucle, La Baranda gallery, Hogar parties and founder of Casa Omar, a space for residencies and exhibitions active between 2012 and 2022 in Buenos Aires.
In 2018 he was selected for the artist program at the CIA. He held workshops with Diana Aisenberg, AB-ELE and participated in seminars led by Alberto Goldenstein, Guillermo Ueno, Martín Reyna, Dolores Casares, Oscar Smoje, Mariano Sapia, Jorge Gonzáles Perrin and Javier Abarca.
Pomar maintains a marked interest in the urban landscape. The exploration of the wall as a surface of enunciation is deployed in the development of large-scale murals in public and private spaces, as well as the deconstruction in exhibition contexts. His body of work opens a varied materiality that encompasses textiles, ceramics and printed publications. The projects that Pomar developed can be found in more than twenty countries such as Argentina, Brazil, the United States, France, Italy and Ukraine.
Jorge made collaborations with Diego Bianchi, RICAS Estudio, Franco Fasoli, Julia Sbriller, and Elian Chali and solo and group exhibitions at Quimera, MUNAR, Pasto, MARCA Museum in Italy, V9 gallery in Poland and Palais de Tokyo in France.
