Andrew Salgado

​In 2017 Andrew Salagado has Andrew Salgado has had two sell-out shows, The Snake at Beers Gallery London, A Room With a View of the Ocean at Lauba Art House in Zagreb, Croatia. He also release a monograph to coincide with a survey show of his work at The Canadian High Commission on Trafalgar Square. Following The Snake, which allowed Salgado to shed his artistic skin and reputation for creating thematically-heavy art, A Room With a View of the Ocean enabled him to undertake a more crude and abstract approach to his art-making. The installation unfolded as a journey through four distinctive chambers, painted in bold colours, extending beyond a 360-degree set. The resulting environment was a hallucinogenic, immersive multimedia landscape, complete with furniture, video projection, and ethereal soundscapes. Viewers moved through three separate rooms, before arriving at the denouement, complete with artificial beach and sun-loungers, as well as an 8m projection of the ocean.
