"I took this shot while traveling in Cartagena Colombia," explains George. "I was speaking on one of our Disney cruise ships - I work for the Walt Disney Company - and was in the old historic colonial part of the city. I was really struck by the patterns of lights and darks and the figures silhouetted against the background."
George’s paintings are inspired by his native Panama, where he was born and raised. The artworks are quiet, thoughtful representations of both city and country life. It might surprise the viewer, given the subtle sophistication of George’s paintings, to learn that he has also been a professional animator with the Walt Disney Company for over 30 years. He directed the 1988 feature length animated film Oliver and Co., and worked on other renowned projects including The Lion King. Now, George’s professional focus is on animation for Disney theme parks and special projects in China. When he’s not animating for Disney, he is painting on location in exciting locales including Shanghai and Panama, or from his home in Southern California.
