Mad Skills Monday 018: Jorge H. Loureiro

Welcome to Mad Skills Monday, where we showcase top work from young creatives to bring some creative inspiration to beat the post-weekend blues. This week we feature the delightfully demented experiments from fine artist Jorge H. Loureiro.

Power tool: Expanding polyurethane foam
Power song: Aphex Twin – Xtal
Power snack: Plastic plants

Jorge Loureiro is a highly experimental fine artist and illustrator who works across multiple mediums to create extremely surreal images, landscapes and structures. Interested in the concepts of hyperreality and virtual reality, he lists his many visual influences as ‘scientific images, African art, outsider/ visionary art, 18th century hermetic engravings, digitally corrupted images and absurd amateur human internet imagery.’ The result is an indescribable, unsettling collection of interweaving shapes and patterns that still manages to convey a distinctive style.


Jorge is currently based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. You can see more of his work on his Flickr and Tumblr pages.
