compared to the extensive information about American artists.|
The artist Salvador Caballero was born in Barcelona, Spain on October 23, 1943 at a time when Barcelona suffered repression of civil liberties that followed the immediate post-war period. Due to the influence of his family, he had a calm childhood, reflected later in his peaceful landscapes.
Opposed to the surroundings of violence, which he was forced to take in as a child and adolescent in Barcelona, Caballero devotes himself to raising the banner of art, which exalts peace and harmony among human beings.
Caballeros intends to his oils to give notice that the artist knows what he is painting. It is not a first impression of fields, a house in the country, some trees, a passing train and some grazing cows, but is an impression that permits him to explain feeling that may or may not be connected with what he has observed.
He paints in a realistic style though he uses his creative freedom to transmit and share esthetic emotions through what he knows and observes.
All Caballeros landscapes are tied to realism, but he interprets them through his imagination and his personal impressions of the realistic view. His goal is to reflect the best of what he sees---to create an expression of life.
Salvador Caballero passed away on May 22nd, 2006. He is survived by his wife and two sons.
