Composer Julián De La Chica met Maestro Jorge Posada thanks to a friend who bought one of his paintings. When she brought Mr. De La Chica to his studio, he was mesmerized by Posada's art, especially his artwork Silent Witnesses. "it was if I had glimpsed the Cycle Op. 9 on canvas. Maestro Posada has the ability of seeing inside of us; he knows our misery, our glories, and his paintings are the radiography of them." Commented Mr. De La Chica.

Mr. Posada proposes that: "The human figure, from the beginning of my career, has a very important role. Sometimes I depict it in a very realistic manner others only as a blurry suggestion of a human form but, always with the same intrinsic intention of exploring its qualities as a vehicle of formal expression. I prefer to establish a visual dialogue that ideally creates a communion of feelings and emotions between the public and my work."
