A Moment of Discovery ~ The Art of Bob Salo

Originally published August 12, 2013

The Songs of Kiguli is mentioned in an earlier post. Although the fund raiser for the project is long over, and the publication has moved into a new phase, I met some amazing people in the process. I want to preserve those connects and recreate some of the magic. This post introduces Bab Salo.

Bob travels around the world looking for subjects and moments that feed his artistic eye and his heart. He is a professional videographer, cameraman, and graphic design graduate of the Ontario College Of Art in Toronto Ontario. He acquires a vast variety of visual elements and “moments” and returns to his studio to recreate the vision he first saw and felt. It is his mission to express what he felt at the time he captured that perfect moment with his camera.


All of his work is by hand using a computer graphics program that allows him to simulate any medium he chooses with a pen on a Wacom tablet. The brushes that can be assigned to his electronic pen can simulate the painting feel and action of watercolor, oils, pastels, or whatever; but the expression itself is still in the control of the hand and the eye of the creator for the enjoyment of the beholder.

Two prints were selected for the long-gone fundraiser, they are shared here by permission of the artist.  You can find Bob at Fine Art America, and at his own website.

Check out the terrific collection of works available on his sites!
