Twenty-four paintings, characteristic for their dreamlike surrealist atmosphere created by "guachimán" (security officer) and painter Hugo Salazar Chuquimango (b. Peru 1983). His exciting and passionate paintings are full of fantasies, monsters, artifacts, and everyday people who build a vigorous and disturbing body of work that reflect his fears, his repressed desires and the violence he witnesses every day, bullet holes, duplicate eyes, heads of fish and sea monsters (he worked also as Port Guard) and boat rudders. In one of his paintings are the three symbols of his office. A shield with the initial Golden SS (Security Service) embrodied in his uniform; the 9332 number which is his code at Prosegur, the security company he works for; and a gun in the shape of a naked woman who is inspired by a quote of his colleagues: "Take care of your weapon as if it were your wife". Contents: La nueva exposición de Hugo Salazar Chuquimango / Paulina Novoa Villavicencio -- Introducción / Fernando Torres Quirós -- Mientras duerme la sirena / Beto Ortiz -- Descubriendo a Salazar o el inconsciente colectivo de Lima / Ernesto Muñoz -- Excluido S al azar -- Hugo Salazar Chuquimango.
