Salvatore of Lucan

"Hello, I’m Salvatore. I am from Lucan. I am mixed-race: half Bangladeshi and half Irish. I was raised by my mother, a single parent who lives with her mother (my Nan) and my younger sister. I mainly make work about my own life; often figurative domestic scenes. I always want to represent myself as accurately as possible. Throughout my life, I have been asked where I am from; to which I have always replied ‘Lucan’. This is why I have recently decided to call myself Salvatore of Lucan instead of Salvatore Fullam - to represent myself more accurately."
