Jorge A. Yances was born in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia,
and educated in the
United States. He was labeled a creative prodigy by art
aficionados at a very
early age. During his teenage years, he fine-tuned his creative
expression using a
variety of techniques and finishes. Yances is a resident of
Nashville, Tenn., and
has a long, successful career creating and selling his artwork.
Yances’ work has been on
display and in demand throughout the United States,
South America and Asia.
Yances’ unique style
gives the viewer the opportunity to sense and feel more than
one reality. The power
of mind and matter intermingle and come to life on the canvas.
This ability has earned
Yances a premier position in the Magical Realism Movement.
The city strikes a
particular chord in the hearts of those who come to Nashville
with visions of a destination,
not merely a place to visit. “Celebration” embraces
and invites each viewer
to awaken to the rhythm of our city; to come closer and
see themselves reflected
as a part of our story.
imagery that initially draws the audience to the painting for
a photo or selfie
becomes, in close proximity and upon examination, a discovery
of phantom spirits
tucked away and peering out, beckoning – a powerful signature
element of the Realismo
The magic of Nashville
welcomes and unites many voices, songs, stories, cultures
