From the SALLO studio and workshop
I always think of taking a journey and it would be to go places that I haven’t been, much like a life’s journal, to see and experience and feel new things.
My SALO paintings try to show different styles, techniques, combination of colors and textures, much like life’s journey, the scenery changes. Having the opportunity to travel for long periods all over the world has allowed me to see various cultures and environments – mountains, deserts, pastures, oceans, rivers. With all of the colors and formations in the world, I want to be able to apply on canvas some of what I have seen, letting both contrasting and complementary colors flow. Some of my experiences include the desert heat and sand storms of Saudi Arabia, the icy cold and wet of Minnesota, the heat and humidity of Florida, the chilly and wet climate in Yellowstone, the humidity and rains of South America, the overcast and wetness of Europe.
My acrylic paintings have been shipped through the United States California, Oregon, Texas, Illinois, Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Virginia and others.
Some of my favorite artist includes Salvador Dali and Paul Jackson Pollock.
