Souther Salazar’s work first began to circulate in the early 90’s, in the form of photocopied cut-and-paste microcomics and ‘zines made in his bedroom as a young teenager in rural Oakdale, CA. After graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, he moved to Los Angeles. Souther exhibits his collages, paintings, drawings and sculptures in dense and frenzied installations that encourage exploration and participation by the viewer. His work has appeared in galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Brazil and Tokyo, and in publications such as Kramers Ergot, Juxtapoz, and Giant Robot. *Courtesy of Scion
