In Samuel Salcedo art irony mixes with the great sympathy to the humans. His realistically made sculptures show ridiculous, funny and some times touching heroes often show nuked. Despite of the small scale, Samuel’s works truly and deeply show all the complex of the human loneliness and confusion.
Another vector of Samuel’s art is giant irreal heads with the distorted features that might show offense. In the age of social media, when each of us could create his own fake image, the artist uncovers shortcomings and weaknesses of an ordinary people showing them in an unusual way. Samuel explains: “I like to play with the image of the mask, to show the look that hide something or on the other hand show several emotions at the same time… My art is a reflection of ourselves, how we see each other and ourselves”.
