Souther Salazar recently put together a pretty dope installation piece for the upcoming Fumetto Festival in Switzerland (with an assist from Monica Choy). As you can see from his other installs for recent shows in New York & Los Angeles, Souther is quite skilled at creating these whimsical mixed media pieces that seem to jump straight out of one of his paintings. The exhibition will be Souther’s first solo in Europe and will feature larger paintings, comics, sculptures and drawings displayed along with “Alejandro”! More […]

Scion ART has sent over a video interview with Souther Salazar for us to share with our readers. If you remember, the self portrait themed traveling Scion Installation 5 exhibition included a fantastic piece from Souther, which he discusses in the video among other things. Make sure you stop by the Giant Robot Biennale 2 exhibition if you have chance to check out Souther’s huge immersive painting and awe-inspiring installation if you haven’t yet. Discuss Souther Salazar here.
As we mentioned in Part I of our coverage of the Giant Robot Biennale, we saved four artists in the upper gallery to share with you in this article. The work of James Jean (interviewed), David Choe, Jeff Soto (interviewed), and Souther Salazar were definitely the highlights of the exhibition, at least in our minds. It seems like they put in the effort and time to create some of the best pieces we have ever seen from them. Take a look at all the amazing […]
Andy Kehoe opened his first NYC solo “Living Twilight” at Jonathan Levine Gallery alongside Souther Salazar (covered). Through his style of detailed majestic landscapes and rich autumn hues, Kehoe was able to capture the essence of twilight. We also enjoyed his customary detailedÂ man-beasts isolated in his beautiful serene locations. Kehoe’sÂ “fantasy-esqe”Â styleÂ also gave us a sense of a storybook childhood nostalgia. After the Saturday opening of both shows, AM joined Andy and Souther for the official after-party in classic Levine fashion! Check out the pics and a […]
Souther Salazar opened his show “Last Year’s Man” at Jonathan Levine Gallery last weekend with a huge body of quality works. We were completely overwhelmed by the various mediums/media that entranced our senses. Known for his melancholy characters that seem simple at first glance, further inspection reveals a veritable “world within a world” complexity. Souther seemed to have the audience in mind when creating his works, as there was literally something to appeal to almost every art enthusiast. There were large wood panels, a video […]
Remember the “Above the Influence” anti-drug ad (seen below) done by artist Souther Salazar a while back. Well, after many amateur parodies done by netizens (some NSFW), popular TV show Family Guy has stepped in with their own version a couple days ago (seen above at the 7:31 mark). An obvious statement, but as the art of our generation gets more mainstream and advertisers realize the power of being in touch with our demographic, we will see more and more references (ie: parody of Shepard […]
