On Exhibit Now
Salvador Flores is a Mexican architect who studied art with Leiton, one of the most influential artists in the North Mexico. His style is inspired by geometric abstraction, Surrealism, and Minimalism. Kandinsky, Hans Arp, Paul Klee, and Latin American Surrealists have all impacted Salvador Flores' art. As a lover of the Surrealists, Flores images are like a journey through the intangible world. The artists' motivations come from the unknown, or rather from the imperceptible: the relation of heaven and earth; good and evil; spirit and soul. As far as Flores' style is concerned, the artist described his own technique as 'controlled experimentation' which involves the search for balance between colour and texture.
Mexican architect and artist Salvador Flores, who claims to be inspired by the abstract, surrealist and minimalist works are closer to that of the cubist movement with a cross between the early line works of Mondrian and the colors of the Expressionist. What he describes as "controlled experimentation", which involves the search for balance between color, and texture is a true understanding of his works and what they bring to the audience. His masterful technique of lines with effortlessness, looking for but unable to find a central focal point, something that many abstract and expressionist artists of today fail to achieve with such elegance. As one looks upon the work there is almost a calm feeling in what at first glances may appear to be ciaos. When you look close enough you are able to see a great deal of influence from his training, as an architect, as thee is almost a bird's eye view of a cityscape in his art.
