About Jorge Cavelier
Jorge was born in Bogotá, Colombia.
After a brief incursion in architecture and a year of painting at New York University, Jorge Cavelier traveled to study in Florence, Italy in the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze where he finished his BFA in 1982. Returning to Colombia the same year he founded “Trazo” an open studio in Bogotá. He worked and taught painting techniques there until 1987. His painting style depends on the technique he uses. He also uses the same techniques that the old masters used to prepare the canvas, and best kinds of oils suited for the painting.
After 1988, he painted in his private studio in Colombia until June 1999, the year he was kidnapped by the guerrilla group “FARC” in Colombia. Released in 2000, he traveled to the U.S. where he decided to migrate. After being granted with an “extraordinary ability” permanent residence visa, he relocated in the city of Key Biscayne, FL where he has been living and working for the last 12 years.
