Souther Salazar’s collages, paintings, drawings and sculptures are playful and vibrant dreamscapes of overlapping narratives— half-remembered, half-imagined places “where stories can develop and take on a life of their own.” Utilizing a wide variety of freely mixed media, found objects and layers of assemblage, his work evokes the wonders and imagination that many of us abandoned in childhood.

Souther began making photocopied cut-and-paste mini-comics and ‘zines as a teenager in California. He now lives in Portland, Oregon and has shown his work in galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Switzerland, Brazil, and other far-flung places. If you’re in the NY area in May, check out his show at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. If you can’t get to NY, there’s always Etsy– Souther has some pretty awesome prints for sale there.

And you can also spend hours soaking your eyeballs in the awesome work on his website and Facebook.
