The Artist

My name is Salazar Luna, was born in 1956 in Maitencillo, Chile . In 1980 I leave Chile and moved to La Pampa, Argentina . After 7 years I left Argentina and went to Sweden , where I lived 13 years in Stockholm. In 2001 I moved to the Canary Islands, Spain . I lived there until the end of 2012. Now I have returned to Sweden and I’m based in Åkersberga . I’ve been working on art nearly 3 decades. My principles are self-taught . Over time I have been doing various art studies in private schools , as well as with other artists. I started dedicating myself to the performance and facilities, trying to denounce the atrocities prevailing in my country of origin. Therefore, my work has always been reflecting social and political issues . Over the past 15 years I have tried to make a more universal and intellectual work . Despite having tried many other techniques of artistic expression such as sculpture , graphics, and others;I decided to experiment in painting and mixed media. As with the conceptual work of installation and performance . In my career, I have exhibited in different spaces and places , such as museums and art galleries in Argentina, Mexico, France, Poland, Finland, Spain and Sweden. My works are represented in museums, embassies, hospitals, town councils and private collections .
