ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
 

Whitney Salgado is a Latinx digital painter and freelance illustrator. A graduate from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design with a focus on Illustration and minor in Communication Design, she has called Milwaukee her home for over a decade. While she prefers working digitally, Salgado also often works with acrylic paint and other traditional mediums. 

ARTIST STATEMENT

Her style has been heavily influenced from Art Nouveau, pop art, and those childhood mornings watching heavily outlined anime before school. Mental health, emotions, and identity are reoccurring themes in her surrealistic portraits. Salgado loves to play with color and is drawn to creating fluid shapes in her work that carry symbolism and meaning. Her goal is to make art that is relatable, fun, and means something.
