Salvador Cantellano


Salvador Cantellano is a filmmaker and video artist, specialising in exploring themes about cultural diversity and connection to place through the discourse of belonging and identity. His practice is a blend of fine arts, screen media, community arts practice with a hint of pop culture and flair. Salvador uses documentary film techniques such as cinematography, sound design, and voice to capture stories about culture and connection to place. Salvador came to the Gold Coast as a refugee in 1989 at the age of five with his parents who escaped the Chilean dictatorship (1973 – 1992). This experience has played a major role in shaping his artistic practice, growing up seeing the world through a bi-focal lens.
