Notes: Alberto Salazar, Mexican master of surrealism, realism, figurative, fantasy and romantic subject, Self-taught artist, His great passion for painting began in childhood, managing to win painting contests at school; however, he was doubtful to devote himself to art because he thought this was for other kind of people. His father, realizing Alberto?s yearning, began to bring him pictorials with works of classic artists such as Caravaggio, Van Eyck, Rembrandt, among others, leading to structure his attraction to that style but with the idea of proposing something more mystical, fantastic, surreal and romantic. His fascination by classical artists led him to choose this style, looking for an aesthetic and transcendent tone and coming to achieve very high quality.
