About the Artist
Gabriel Soto (b. El Salvador) is an artist with an interest in psychedelic imagery, history, and esoteric spiritual practices. He graduated from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with a BFA in 2017. Primarily focused on oil painting and drawing, Gabriel combines imagery from both the classical tradition and several different sources to collage elements that create other worlds, dimensions, and esoteric allegories.
"My work revolves around the collection and use of imagery from several different time periods and cultures. My main source of imagery so far has been Western painting, as it has been a large influence in my academic training. My interest in the use and alteration of Classical painting comes from an interest in the history of unorthodox philosophy and alchemy in Western History. I graduated form PAFA in 2017, and I'm currently making work in Chicago."
