Welcome to this gallery of my rough expression, not meant for decoration. This is a brief selection of my work. I apologize, some of them may be a little rude, some of this came wen young, but anyway, I’d like to share some. Afterwards, beneath this gallery, I’d also like to share some thoughts and hopefully answer a couple of questions. I’ve done 4 individual art shows and participated in several collectives in many places of the world, California, Barcelona, Abruzzo Italy, Guatemala, etc. Since my youth, this has been a hobby more than anything, and I’ve just produced about 80 pieces in this line, but interestingly enough, most of this work is sold. Again, welcome…
“What is the source of my inspiration?” Many times, this is the first question.
Well, let me start with the following statement: whatever I have, has been given. I didn't choose to have it, however I love it and cherish it as my own.
I’m Salvador, an artist and a believer in Jesus, not a common combination. However, the more I meditate about his existence, the more I rely on him, the more I dream, the more I think about it, the more I discern that the chances of all this amazing creation just happening are infinitesimal. Without humbleness, it's impossible to see this. Therefore, I paint for him and for any one that earnestly seeks the truth. I live in my canvases, and I surely look like an amorphous sprout in them, with roots deepened in several parts of the world, but anyhow it seems I'm flourishing in this seedbed so called Earth.
I wish my canvases to become lamps, rivers, swords or chairs to rest. I hope some day they'll tell tales of how I’d been both affluent and adverse, in many places of this planet. Let my canvases express how I've felt when I swallowed an uninhabited town inside of me, abandoned by the migration of hopes and abandoned by all, even even by the war itself.
I will soon leave and, hopefully, my canvases will stay here a little longer than me, but soon they’ll be gone too. But in all this, one thing has the chance to remain, that is, the simplicity of a person discovering the presence of his or her own soul and its reflection of God's own, then being thankful for it.
I invite you to understand what I mean through my work. Maybe you'll identifying in the canvas some fragment of you. Maybe you’ll find the painting, existing, living, in some nook inside your memories and history as a human being.
Thank you for your time and interest.
