Souther Salazar

USA

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). Salazar has exhibitted with Narwhal in You and Me (and the Mouse in the Moon) solo exhibition.
