Paolo Salvador is a Peruvian-born, Berlin-based artist who creates mythological paintings that comment on themes related to home, displacement and belonging. For his latest solo exhibition, Salvador presents Los últimos días del gato de fuego (The Last Days of the Fire Cat) at Peres Projects in Milan. On view across the ornate halls of the gallery is a suite of new paintings, each of which imbue Andean traditions and folklore with Salvador’s own life experiences growing up in Peru and now living in Europe.
