ANDREW SALGADO
'THE MISANTHROPE'

Preview – Wednesday, October 10, 2012 from 6-9pm
Exhibition – October 11 – 17 November, 2012

At a time when painting itself often seems to be a threatened, even despised, form of artistic activity, Andrew Salgado emerges as a dazzlingly skillful advocate for the medium he has chosen to embrace.
- Edward Lucie-Smith

Andrew Salgado exhibits large-scale, gestural figurative paintings that verge into bold abstraction with The Misanthrope, opening 10 October from 6-9pm. Salgado’s work has been featured in METRO, The Independent, Shortlist, Yatzer, Juxtapoz, Colossal, Booooooom!, Beautiful Decay, Paradigm, Chaos, and TOH! Italia.

Andrew Salgado (b. 1982, Regina, Canada) has exhibited in the United Kingdom, Germany, Scandinavia, Australia, Venezuela, Thailand, Korea, Canada, and the United States. His bold, assertive, and generally large-scale figurative paintings have placed him as one-to-watch in both the UK’s and North America’s painting scenes; his recent solo exhibitions include In Order To Rebuild; Dosi Gallery, Busan, Korea (2012); and The Acquaintance, his first institution-exhibition at his home-town in The Art Gallery of Regina, Canada (Jan 2013); as well as solo exhibitions in 2013 at La Petit Mort Gallery, Ottawa, Canada (May 2013); and One Art Space in New York City (October 2013). Salgado’s paintings have hung in London’s Courtauld Institute of the Arts (2010) alongside Tracy Emin and Gary Hume, was the highest-grossing work ever donated to Canada’s esteemed Art For Life (18th Annual) Charity Auction (2011); included in the Merida Biennale of Contemporary Art (2010), the NordArt Carlshutte Biennale (2012); and is often featured in press and magazines, such as Yatzer!, Juxtapoz Mag, Paradigm, Chaos and TOH! Italia. In 2011 he was featured in the Channel 4 (UK) documentary The Science of Art alongside artists Anish Kapoor, Howard Hodgkins, and Bridget Riley (2011). He has lived and worked in London, UK since 2008.
