Jorge Wright – Biography
“Born in 1997 to two artist parents, I feel fortunate to have grown up in a creative household in Clevedon surrounded by native bush.
This has definitely nurtured my creativity. My goal has always been to work for myself.
Having spent a few years at Massey university in Wellington exploring a design degree, and a year in the building industry, I feel excited to be creating some unique artwork now combining the skills I have learnt.
For my concept I have brought attention to a serious issue that remains in our country and around the world. Recent research has found that almost one-third of people in New Zealand have had a personal experience of mental distress. My concept work titled “Head Within” brings light to the inner struggles and thoughts we can all go through at times.”
