Artist's Statement

In Salas' paintings, the fusion of three colors creates an environment with pleasant simplicity. The splatters create an equilibrium in the human mind when subconsciously interpreting order and chaos. The work transmits harmonic satisfaction in a color wheel that can be turned infinitely.


Salas is an experimental filmmaker in the world of cinema showcasing his work in both national and international festivals.
