Sergio Valencia Salazar has an academic training and a fine arts degree with a major in drawing from the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas “Rafael Rodríguez Padilla.” Since June 2012 he works as a printer in the Taller Experimental de Gráfica (TEGG) in Guatemala City.
The landscape is the immediate physical environment, is the perception that people have about the space humans inhabit, and the artist shows us how to understand it. His work seeks to document changes in the natural and urban terrain, caused by natural or artificial causes. These changes speak of the relationship of society as physical environment, which is conditional on a way of life, modifying geography. Each groove in the ground, each new structure, and each natural accident has a meaning which constructs a story and memory. For Valencia Salazar, the landscape is a way to balance identity and the reflection of identity.
He participated in the 2da Bienal Internacional de Grabado y Estampa José Guadalupe Posada, José Guadalupe Posada Museum, Aguascalientes, Mexico, 2015, and in the 3ra Feria de Grabado, Casa de la Cultura Victor Sandoval, Aguascalientes, Mexico, 2015.
