About the Artist:
Michael Salvadori (*1986) is a self-taught austrian artist. After working as a carpenter in his early ages he decided at the age of 24 becoming an full time artist. He started to specialize in the technique of cross-hatching in ink on paper and the attempt of expanding and exploring the range of possibilities in this matter, three years later. So far, his work is strongly characterized by the depiction on surrealistic landscapes, but also photorealistic and abstract subjects. A special characteristic of his work is his love of detail, which is evident in one of his latest projects, a 107 meter long drawing,which took more than five years of work and is going to be published as a book, in 2022. He is a member of a group of five people, at the moment who building up a gallery and meeting/working spot for creative people, in the western part of Austria called “Galerie im Krafthaus” (i.g.: galerie.krafthaus, www.krafthaus.org) which will open this summer.
