Powerful Paintings by Andrew Salgado
Andrew Salgado is a Canadian artist based in London. His powerful, colourful portraits are focused on themes such as identity, sexuality and convalescence.
“I am interested in how my paintings might operate independently from their literal figurative foundation and engage with an exploration of color, reduction of forms, and triumph of substance as imbued with meaning and metaphor, overt, and suggestive. My practice is a process encumbered by the reduction of literalness in preference of a sensual and topographical painted surface.”
