Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art Presentsan exhibitionnew works by artist Shizu Saldamando.

With the help of intimate and provocative paintings, drawings and videos, Saldamando presents a modern portrait that explores and challenges personality designs.

The artist works on informal portraits of friends and family, paying particular attention to the often overlooked color communities: punks, queers, activists and artists.

Challenging the traditions of wealth and prestige in portraiture, Saldamando presents works that allow the underground crowd to see their reflection and establish themselves in modern culture, while at the same time making them visible to a new audience.
