The work of Philippine-born Drixx Salvador, 2021 artist in residence of Chetwynd, British Columbia, Canada, is on display at the Dawson Creek Art Gallery, part of three exhibitions up until Feb. 25.

Salvador told the Dawson Creek Mirror that he’s had the best year yet, thanks to the Peace Liard Regional Arts Council’s residency program, which offers mentorship and financial support for local artists..

Salvador is self-taught and works with oil paints and mixed media. He moved to Canada in 2017 for work, trading the tropics for a colder climate.

His love for art started at an early age, says Salvador, but was put on hold for a number of years due to lack of support and formal training.

In his exhibit “Flora and Fauna,” Salvador illustrates the rich biodiversity of the Philippines — fish, marine life, tropical flowers and plants — and hopes his artwork will help lift residents’ spirits during the winter months.
