London-based painter Andrew Salgado returns with a smashing new group of paintings made exclusively for our third time exhibiting at Zona Maco art fair, Mexico City. Salgado's newest works forego his trademark solitary figure for scenes of multiple figures tumbling through various fantasy-like narratives. Calling upon traditions of Mexican retablo painting, magic-realist narratives, folk-art, pop-art, and the very act of painting itself - these works are simultaneously 'very Salgado' and quite unlike anything the 36-year old artist has ever done previously: bursting from their painterly constraints with colour, texture, shape, and character. In 'Contemporary Pleasure Island Time Wasters' (a title inspired by the popular television game-show Jeopardy!'s "Before and After" category,) a grouping of figures (including Salgado himself) cram into a space in which tropes from Dutch Still Live paintings seem to tumble across the composition. In 'The Dandy', a solitary figure stands amidst a collection of artworks, vases, masks, and other antiquities including a larger-than life 'blue' Hercules statue and copies of Matisse paintings and Grecian bronzes - entirely framed by vases - framed within larger vases. In our age of incessant visual information, the works seem oddly nostalgic, but almost comically self-aware - in which art-historical hierarchies are flattened and grouped together for immediate consumption.

ANDREW SALGADO (b. 1982, Regina, Canada) lives and works in London, England. He graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2009, and a BFA from University of BC, Vancouver, in 2005. Salgado has had 13 sold-out solo exhibitions, and in 2017, was the youngest artist to ever receive a survey-exhibition at The Canadian High Commission in London, accompanied by a 300-page monograph, both of which were entitled TEN. In 2013 he was thrust into the spotlight having been commissioned by Harvey Nichols to do 6 paintings for their storefront display. Previous solo exhibitions include, 'Blue Rainbow' Angell Gallery, Toronto, (October 2018); 'Nature Boy', Beers London, (2018); 'Dirty Linen & The Nihilist's Alphabet, Christopher Moller Gallery, Cape Town (2018), ‘A Room with a View of the Ocean’, Lauba Art House, Zagreb (2017); ‘TEN’, Gallery of the Canadian High Commission, London (2017); and ‘The Fool Makes a Joke at Midnight’, Thierry Goldberg, New York (2016). His fourth solo show at Beers London is currently scheduled for 1st quarter, 2020. In 2015, Salgado curated The Fantasy of Representation, including work by Francis Bacon, Gary Hume, and Hurvin Anderson, including an impassioned manifesto on representational painting. He has received extensive press both online and in print, including GQ, The Evening Standard, The Independent, Artsy, METRO, Attitude Magazine, Globe and Mail (CAN) and Macleans (CAN). He frequently donates to charities including Pride London, Stonewall, and Diversity Role Models; his donations to the Terrence Higgins Trust are of particular note, having have raised over six-figures. This spring, Salgado will go to auction with Strauss Auction House for the first time. He has been collected extensively in private and public collections worldwide and is widely regarded as one of the UK's leading young figurative painters.
