Salomón Huerta

Los Angeles based painter Salomón Huerta is best known for his work in the 1990s depicting lower middle class homes and the backs of people's heads in crisp detail and high chroma colors. Stark, Hopper-esque compositions and subject matter contrast with Huerta's vibrant, pop color palette, enveloping the work in a distinctive sense of mystery and aura.  

Huerta's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, including the Gagosian and El Museo del Barrio. His work was also included in the 2000 Whitney Biennial, and has been collected by numerous institutions and private collections including LACMA and MOCA San Diego.
