SOUTHER SALAZAR

Born in California, USA. Lives and works in California, USA.
Salazar works in painting, drawing, sculpture, animation, and more, creating densely-layered universes that offer aspirational spaces for dreaming, thinking and being. Salazar’s aesthetic is a pleasing hybrid of classic children’s book illustrations and narratives, Modernist abstraction and the vernacular of contemporary illustration. Lacking irony or other types of distantiation, Salazar’s work bravely occupies a genuinely charming space and aesthetic that serves to put forth his propositions for ways of being in the world, together.

Souther Salazar received a BFA from the Art Center College of Art and Design in Pasadena, California. Salazar’s solo exhibitions include You Come Too, Jonathan Levine Gallery (NYC); Make It Real, GR2 (LA); and We Were Young and It Was Summer, GRNY (NYC). Recent group exhibitions include Juxtapoz Turns 18, Copro Gallery (LA), and Pattern Recognition, Subliminal Projects (LA).
