Carlos Salgado (b. Guanajuato, MEXICO, 1974) has been travelling for the past 20 years and decided to set up his studio in Seville, Spain, 14 years ago. He has developed a unique style wherein we can recognise the colours and shapes of Latin America and also the influence of international contemporary art.
Salgado was invited by Amnesty International to exhibit in France in May 2004 as part of their campaign against issues such as violations of human rights, illegal immigration and violence against women around the World. In January 2005 he completed a series of paintings entitled Multiculturalism, and working with the Mexican, Canadian and French Embassies travelled to Thailand to exhibit his project.
Salgado’s most recent project, entitled Voyage, was first exhibited in Mexico during July and August 2011. It has since been exhibited in Spain, France and Holland. Salgado’s paintings have illustrated several publications, including books and CD covers. His list of international private and public collectors include Mexico, Canada, U.S.A., Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Holland, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, New Zealand and Thailand.
