Souther Salazar’s work first began to circulate about 10 – 12 years back. He graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in Canada.
I enjoy the lightness. Its a happy break from seeing a lot of macabre and/or intense works which seem to dominate the scene. Souther Salazar exhibits his collages, paintings, drawings and sculptures in dense and frenzied installations. He uses mixed medias which allows viewers to interact with his work. His work has appeared in galleries all over the world from New York, Portland to Tokyo.
Stephen Wiltshire was born in London on 24th April, 1974. He is known as “the human camera“.
As a child, Stephen was mute and did not relate to other people. When he was around 3 years old he was diagnosed as autistic. He had no language ability, tantrums and lived entirely in his own world.
At the tender age of five he was sent to a school for children with special needs. Here he began to illustrate. He started with animals, then London buses, and finally buildings. Apparently the drawings showed a great natural skill and excellent perspective – for the first time his natural innate artistry was revealed.
