I looked you up and learned of your death and it hit me hard. So hard. We once were lovers but you were so much more. You took me flying in a whirlwind of museums, art and science. You introduced me to bowling alleys and stadiums and fast food. Those field trips just for us, trilobites and trillium, bufflehead ducks. Your lovely family, Ernie and Edith so sweet and generous. So much time has gone. I’d dream of you now and then and wake up wishing I could let you know how much you gave to me, how much you added to my life.

It’s with great sadness and a profound sense of loss that we share with you the passing of David Salgado. I first met David as an 11-year-old when my dad was making prints at Trillium Graphics in South Park. 15 years later we became business partners and started Trillium Press. The mid-90’s we exciting times in digital printmaking. Shunned by most in the art world, the technology needed someone with perspective and vision to champion it and make sure it was’t “raised by wolves.” David was that caretaker. He taught me so much about art, making art, working with artists; about always being on the sharpest edge of creative; about zagging when he saw the art world zig. Too many lessons. We were partners for 10 important years and I worked with so many great artists together with him. For all of you who knew what a special chemistry Trillium was during those years, it was due, in very large part to the culture he fostered. In the end, Electric Works zigged and David zagged, but I’ll always honor the time together.

David was my first mentor for 3 years after art school and had a profound influence in what seems like a short time now. I learned so much from him about art and life while working under him, while he showed me his favorite little bay area spots as well. It was really a magical experience to watch him and Erb create editions while he floated paper on and off the litho press like a ballet. He was such a generous person who never had an issue stepping aside to encourage and push me toward an opportunity or printmaking idea. I will always remember his passionate approach to everything he pursued, his artistic vision and critique, and will cherish and honor his continued inspiration. Rest in peace dear friend.
