Margaret Salazar is a painter whose works are characterized by a playful yet contemplative style.

Salazar recurrently uses motifs such as trees, dresses, princes and princesses, which are given a whimsical treatment and emotional and reflective titles, such as gratitude or joy. Consequently, her work is at once suggestive of the fleetingness of time and the endurance of wisdom.

Salazar studied drawing and engraving at the Central University of Venezuela and the Simón Rodríguez National Experimental University, respectively, as well as studying Political Science at the Ecole d’Etudes Politiques in Paris, France.

She has carried out a wealth of different courses to broaden her skills as an artist, from handmade paper to glasswork.

Salazar’s work has been exhibited for almost thirty years. Her solo exhibitions include shows at Vincent Gallery in Miami and the Galería Díaz Mancini in Caracas, while her long list of group exhibitions spans a number of galleries across Germany and the United States.
