Since he was invited by Nick Koeningsknecht to do a residency at Open Forum after graduating, Peruvian artist Paolo Salvador has steadily gained confidence by presenting his work in different countries around the world. Today he inaugurates his third solo exhibition with Peres Projects and his first in their Milan space, Los últimos días del gato de fuego. It’s the first solo show opening he’s attended since the start of the pandemic and he admits to being very excited by the respect he has for Italian art. And also a little nervous. We speak with him a few hours before the gallery opens its doors. You can visit the exhibition until October 7.
