The large scale, gestural paintings of Andrew Salgado explore concepts relating to the destruction and reconstruction of identity – a process that he views as re-considering the conventions of figurative painting through a pursuit toward abstraction. Salgado questions the nature of identity and even the act of painting itself as something monstrous, allegorical, or symbolic. Incorporating Classical archetypes alongside a wildly inventive approach to his chosen media, Salgado’s work defies categorization. Recent works include collage, mixed-media, and even hand-dyed and hand-stitched linen and canvas. ”I am interested in how my paintings operate independently from their literal figurative foundation, and how they might deconstruct through colour choices, reduction of forms, and triumph of materiality to become something altogether otherworldly."



ANDREW SALGADO (b.1982, Canada) has been hailed as one of the most promising young figurative painters working today, riding atop of 11 sold-out exhibitions, and being endorsed by critics like Tony Godfrey, Edward Lucie-Smith, and more. Saatchi Art calls him "one to invest in now"; and Artsy states he 'complicates portraiture' with 'a sense of frailty and potency'. He has been featured in GQ, the Evening Standard, The Independent, METRO, and more. Forthcoming solo exhibitions TEN, a survey exhibition at The Canadian High Commission, Trafalgar Square, London, (Jan-Feb 2017) to coincide with an artist monograph of the same name; A Room With a View of the Ocean, an institution exhibition with Rhys Lee at Lauba, Zagreb, Croatia (May 2017); and October 2017 marks the first time in nearly 5 years that the artist will return to his native Canada, with Back to the Country at the esteemed Angell Gallery, Toronto. In 2015 Salgado curated The Fantasy of Representation at Beers London, including work by Francis Bacon, Gary Hume, and Hurvin Anderson. He is featured in 100 Painters of Tomorrow, (Thames & Hudson, 2014), and is subject of a 2015 documentary, Storytelling(www.storytellingfilm.com). He frequently gives to charities, including Terrence Higgins Trust and is a patron of Diversity Role Models, among others.Solo exhibitions include The Snake, Beers London (2016); The Fool Makes a Joke at Midnight, Thierry Goldberg, New York, (2016); A Quiet Man, PULSE Miami, (2015); This Is Not The Way To Disneyland, Volta Basel, (2015); Storytelling, Beers, London (2014); Variations on A Theme, OAS, New York, (2014); Enjoy the Silence, Christopher Møller, Cape Town (2014); his first museum exhibition, The Acquaintance, Art Gallery of Regina, Canada (2013).
