In 1973, Jorge Salas entered the school of Architecture of the Central University of Venezuela (UCV) while studying painting with Professor Ángel Boscán. He left the university to attend the Cristóbal Rojas School of Plastic Arts, where he took painting and sculpture courses. In 1995 he did an internship at the Marble Laboratory in Pietra Santa, Italy.

In the late 1970s he had his first exhibitions, which raised great expectations for his work as a sculptor.

From that time on, his work was characterized by paying attention to the treatment of the surface and achieving reliefs that he made with carving, assembling and construction.( …)
