I was born and raised in Panama City, Panama and the main road through the city of Panama is called Avenida Central or "Central Avenue." When I go back to Panama, I always try to visit this area to get some material to paint. I got the shot on one of the little side streets that feeds into this thoroughfare. I'm always looking for strong light and dark patterns and this nailed it.
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.
