“Salas-Humara is a keen observer of popular forms, absorbing the salient characteristics and energies of various genres and subgenres, and recontextualizing these attributes within his own aesthetic vision. In this way, he draws from and comments on numerous sources, reaffirming and expanding his own palette. Encyclopedic in his comprehension of musical history, Salas-Humara masterfully reframes antecedent sources as his own. Whether mining shoegaze, folk balladry, Caribbean sounds, grunge, or the blues, he exhibits a knack for weaving borrowed stylistics into his own broad and still-broadening aesthetic brand, transforming heritage into legacy, debt into benefaction – interpreting the past with an ear for the future.” — John Amen, No Depression
“Painting is a peculiar miracle that I need to have again and again. It’s a dance with a blank canvas and a spiritual essence. I revel in the drag, the smear, the splash and flow of liquid color, in the physicality of the strokes.” — Walter Salas-Humara
