Andrew Salgado

"The large scale, gestural paintings of Andrew Salgado works 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. To create paintings that engage beyond what is immediately visible, he often consciously questions the nature of identity (and painting) itself as something deconstructed, created, and tangible."

- from Beers Contemporary

I just discovered the works of Andrew Salgado online.  I am a fan.  I'm a really big fan. The art he creates is exactly the kind of art that speaks to me.  Lucky for me he's two years younger than me, which means I will be able to admire his art for many more years.  He's just getting started!

To my readers with a significant art budgets: go pick up one of his pieces and invite me over to see it!  His work might be the price of a car, but unlike a car they won't go out of style!  These pictures don't capture the scale of his work, but you can appreciate the masterpieces...
