Chilean artist Santiago Salvador paints images of tiny, anonymous people often arranged in patterns reminiscent of traditional South American weaving.  “I think of my paintings and drawings as constructions.  I include recognizable elements in them and others that are not, creating a composition in a way loses a narrative logic, but maintains in itself a friendly and mysterious stability.  I think that painting and illustrations are a gateway to the recognizable, the intimate and the ambiguous that surround us.”
