Giant Robot is proud to present the art of Souther Salazar at GR2.
Souther Salazar lives and works in Los Angeles. His artwork reinterprets the world making it a mythical place of carnivals, lost cities, giant insects, dinosaurs, and a variety of other animals. Souther mixes media, adding layers upon layers of storytelling making his work something to explore for hours. Souther Salazar graduated with a BFA from Art Center in Pasadena.
Make It Real was inspired by a long drive and wandering mind. Souther imagined stories, scenes, places, and things that made him feel positive and constructive. These thoughts are manifested in six large paintings: five 30″ x 48″ landscapes and one 48” x 48” square.
The show will end on October 31, allowing key works to appear at a Giant Robot-curated art show at the Japanese American National Museum.
An opening reception for Salazar will take place from 6:30 – 10:00 on Saturday, October 13.
