About Me

Leo Salazar is an abstract painter, sculptor and photographer who lives and works in Madison, WI. He was born in Chicago, the son of Mexican immigrants. The family came to settle in Madison but his parents would later be deported. Leo's mother played a key role in encouraging and nurturing his creativity, which became a powerful source of healing and strength during the family's upheaval.

Leo's approach to his work is open yet very driven. He combines his formal art training with self-taught methods. "If I try something and it doesn't work out, I'll try something else. Or I'll just make it work". This also applies to how he lives his life, with a mix of adventure and resolve that fuels his translation of ideas and emotions into beautiful pieces. He travels the US and Mexico seeking fresh ideas and inspiration.

Bold colors and textures in his pieces relate a positive triumph over sadness and pain. There is darkness but never despair.

Leo continues to develop his methods and expand the scope of his work, opening channels within himself to do so. He is seeking to get more into the public eye and make art his primary focus.
