~Rafael defies the assumption of his medium by employing techniques to push his images toward abstraction.~
He has always been ahead of the times... An Artist Provocateur.
Nowadays, he is dedicated to painting; producing a vast array of creations where his imagination has no boundaries.
His style of art can be described as abstract, contemporary, and colorful. His art often features bright and bold colors, and he uses a variety of techniques such as digital manipulation, mixed media, and collage to create intricate and dynamic compositions. Salazar's works also often incorporate elements of nature, such as flowers, leaves, and animals, but these are presented in a stylized and abstract manner. Overall, his art can be seen as a fusion of traditional and modern techniques that results in vibrant and captivating imagery.
His new collection of paintings brings an incredible display of colors, strength, and imagination characteristic of all his creations.
His abstract style shows a journey thru his roots, art learned from el 'Grupo Barranquilla' at 'La Cueva', his colors, and the maturity of over 60 years of experience.
