In Trezenzonio. Possible worlds, the artist has been inspired by the story of Trezenzonio, an Asturian monk who, according to an 11th century story, was able to travel to one of the islands of Paradise, the great Solstice Island. From this trip and, through his informal painting, but without losing the figuration, Salteiro shows us, in Rooms 1 and 2, mysterious compositions, full of light with intense colors that acquire a new expression.
