Andrew Salgado paints large colorful portraits and abstract figurative work. He is originally from Canada but after attending graduate school at Chelsea he made London his home.
In this interview, Andrew and Antrese talk about living in a different country and how immersing yourself in an artistic culture different from your own presents challenges and opportunities for growth. Those opportunities are central to this discussion – Andrew finds opportunities for growth all around him- from fears we have as artists about our work, to competitive rivalries. How these issues affect our work is entirely dependent on mindset, as Andrew says “What happens in the studio is just a microcosmic example of what happens in life.”
