Paolo Salvador

 
 

Paolo Salvador (Peru, 1990) expresses the imaginary related to his identity as a Peruvian with a Western education and influence. He finds a division in being unable to look at his culture in a way that is ingrained or expresses its cosmovision. His practice has a strong relation with the materials. How they change from one state to another and how they can evoke sensations and feelings through a tactile and infinitesimal interaction. Paolo has extensively exhibited in Latin America, and recently completed the TFAC residency in London. He is currenlty attending the MFA in painting at Slade.
