March 4-20, 2022
Xchanges Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening on March 4, 2022 of Nick Salvador’s solo exhibition, Building Memories.
Rooted in an interest of the International Style of architecture found around the world, Salvador examines how modern buildings fit into the narrative of the city they inhabit. Expanses of reflective glass might capture the fractured facade of a nearby historic building, creating a dynamic space on an otherwise flat surface. Through a unique juxtaposition of images, the lines and contours of one building bleed into the lines of another building, creating a continuous undulating surface that is also disjointed by the act of creating a Buildingscape from multiple photographic memories.
About the Artist
Nick Salvador, born and raised in Victoria, B.C., graduated from the University of Victoria’s Visual Arts program with Honours and Distinction in 2005. Photography—a practice he has been working at for over 25 years—was his first creative passion, then his interest in art grew from there. His training includes painting, drawing, video, graphic design, and architectural drafting. Nick has a keen interest in architecture, and he looks for inspiration through drawing and painting to develop his artistic expression with his photographic works.
Salvador’s art has been included in several group exhibitions including the Sooke Fine Arts Show, as well as various photography contests.

On March 20, 2022 at 3 p.m., Nick will be hosting the artist talk for “BUILDING MEMORIES.”
