Andrew Salgado
Harvey Nichols Exhibition

Exhibition: 24th March 2013 only
Participating Artist: ANDREW SALGADO (solo)

On Sunday, 24th March 2013, Beers.Lambert Contemporary will be debuting 6 new large-scale paintings commissioned by the luxurious retailer Harvey Nichols by artist Andrew Salgado for one day only. These works will then be exhibited in the store-front windows of Harvey Nichols at their Sloane Street location in Knightsbridge for 11-weeks commencing 30th March 2013.

This is a unique opportunity to view Salgado’s newest (and largest) works. In the past Salgado’s paintings have hung alongside works by Tracey Emin and Gary Hume at the Courtauld Institute in London, and in 2011 Salgado’s donated piece to Canada’s esteemed Art For Life Charity auction in Vancouver received the highest-grossing bid in the charity’s 18-year history. In 2012 Salgado was featured in the Channel 4 (UK) documentary What Makes a Masterpiece, alongside artists like Anish Kapoor, Howard Hodgkins, and Bridget Riley. His bold, assertive, and generally large-scale figurative paintings have placed him as one-to-watch as recently stated by Will Ramsay, Founder of the Affordable Art Fair, in the February 26th edition of the Metro.
