Meet Koreatown Visual Artist: Filo Salva

Today we’d like to introduce you to Filo Salva.

Filo, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I moved to LA and started in photography around 2012. I’m self-taught and basically experimented with everything I can think of, and now have a certain theme for some of my photographs in which I draw on them. I’m still learning and trying different aspects of photography and visual arts.

Has it been a smooth road?
It’s been smooth so far I haven’t made an attempt to reach out of my zone as of yet because I feel I still have a lot to learn. But it’s been definitely fun. I just like creating stunning visual compositions from events, portraits or anything that appeals to my eye.

What has been the proudest moment of your career so far?
Selling a photo when I had no intention of making money from it. I planned to give it to a friend for free because he liked my stuff. But instead, he insisted on not accepting it for free. At the end, we agreed on a transaction.

Tell us more about the struggles you’ve faced along the way.
Struggle? Um, I think the most struggling thing for me so far is the fact that at times when I’m in a creating mode I get asked to do certain things which at times bothers my flow of work. I like free flow, I feel like I work best with free flowing my creativity. Nothing forced. And when things are too forced for me I personally feel like I am not best.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes 100%, LA has everything you need. Plain and simple. I actually believe it rivals NY and it’s closing the gap. That’s just my honest opinion.
