ANDREW SALGADO (b. 1982, Canada) graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art in 2009, and is regarded as one of the United Kingdom’s leading figurative painters. Since 2010, he has had over 16 sold-out international solo exhibitions in London, New York, Tokyo, Miami, Toronto, Cape Town (South Africa), Basel (Switzerland), and Zagreb (Croatia).
In 2017, Salgado was the youngest artist to receive a survey exhibition at The Canadian High Commission in London. He has received press both online and in print, including GQ, The Evening Standard, The Independent, Artsy, METRO, Attitude Magazine, Globe and Mail (CAN), and Macleans (CAN). He frequently donates to charities, most notably to the Terrence Higgins Trust, having raised over £135,000 since 2014. In March 2019, he entered the secondary market with a piece in a Strauss & Co auction in South Africa that doubled its estimate; and went to auction at Phillips (NY) in June 2021 with a piece selling for five times its estimate.
