About Artists
2023 - 2024
Salvador Andrade

Salvador Andrade Arévalo was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and raised in the Chicagoland area. He is a trained printmaker that works primarily in painting, drawing, and installation. 

As a fourth generation migrant laborer, he contends with the erasure and commodification of his family's culture, history, and traditions due to economic duress imposed by neoliberal policies and draconian immigration policies. His work draws potency from ancestral influences connected to intergenerational knowledge, folklore, hand crafts, syncretic belief systems, and vernacular traditions.

He received both his BA ('10) and MFA ('22) from Yale University in Painting & Printmaking. He also holds an MPhil in Latin American Studies from the University of Cambridge ('12), with a thesis that focuses on 19th century Mexican lithography.

He has held residencies and fellowships with Spudnik Press, Fulbright (Mexico City), SOMA Summer, Yale University Art Gallery, Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and Chicago Artists Coalition (BOLT). In addition, his artwork is included in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Mexican Art and the Willis Tower.

Pensamientos / Thoughts. 2022. oil on canvas. 24 x 20 inches.
