Andrew Salgado is a Canadian-born British artist who works in mixed media. His artistic style is difficult to define, but it is definitely non-standard and innovative, bold and bright.
The artist cannot be attributed to any of the genres of visual art.
Painted in oil or pastel, men's portraits 2.5 m high are integrated with such diverse materials as paperback books, bags, gloves, miniature random objects that add volume to a two-dimensional texture.
Salgado portrays more than the physical appearance of the people with whom he had relations, friendly, partner, friendships.
He manages to express the feelings, thoughts, emotions and experiences of his characters.
Behind each painting is a real dramatic or humorous story, which he pieces together on canvas from various expressive media.
The artist captivates the viewer and includes him in the process of interpreting what he has seen.
Salgado's non-standard creations have been exhibited at solo exhibitions in Europe – in London and Zagreb.
