José García Cordero


Born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic in 1951.
J. G. C. has lived and works in Paris since 1977. He has been based in Montreuil, France, since 1996.
Represented by Lyle O. Reitzel in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, José García Cordero was born 1951, in Santiago, Dominican Republic. He studied painting with the Dominican Master Hernández Ortega. In 1977, running away from Balaguer's dictatorship, he moved to Paris in a voluntary exile, where he studied Contemporary History in the University of Vincennes.
"Dividing his time between Dominican Republic (Santo Domingo and Cabarete) and Paris, France, José García Cordero creates large-scale, "double entendre" paintings that reflect both the duality of his personal experience and the conflicts between European and Caribbean culture. Also an eloquent poet/philosopher, this Dominican Republic native is inspired by Latin American authors as much as by visual artists.
