Description & Technical information

This beautiful overpainted photograph is part of Astor Milan Salcedo’s ‘Nature Series’ produced in 2018, that explores mankind’s vital relation to nature.

By combining his eye for photography and other art media, Astor creates inventive and striking works of contemporary art, that lie somewhere between a collage and a painting. He does this by applying multiple layers of brightly coloured paint with a variety of tools such as brushes, squeegees, and even his bare hands. Through his work, Astor invites the viewer to experience and be involved in the picture, rather than just see it.

As well as this, through Salcedo’s photography the viewer gathers a real sense of his love for the natural surroundings, which is strongly linked to his travelling as he is known for immersing himself in different cultures, documenting everything he sees.
