Love Can Get Tricky is a unique work that exemplifies King Saladeen’s commitment to innovation and a strong tie to his roots. Saladeen revisits his “first love,” returning to abstraction and developing a sophisticated composition that incorporates both his origin and the signature style developed over the last decade.
After completing the mixed media painting, Saladeen felt as though there was something missing and decided to mount the canvas on black wooden boards extending the abstraction beyond the square boundary.
Love Can Get Tricky was featured in 1970s / GRAFFITI / TODAY at Phillips in early 2022.
