"His paintings and assemblages are simultaneously fey, charming and critically incisive."  Art Lies

"Saavedra's work never relies on knee-jerk shock value or easy irony, but is instead animated by a spirit of gritty, thwarted romanticism."  San Antonio Current

" ... An impassioned social theme ... an eye-seducing knack for elegant line, immersive palette and complex surface; a talent for likeness ... and an unassuming workmanlike vibe ... I was bowled over by the densely worked surfaces, the masterful but elusive technique of paint application."  Plaza de Armas

"There's a rage almost in his work, and an edge.  And when you meet him, he's very gentle and very kind.  He has a soft heart, but his intellect is very sharp and his artistry is where he exerts his politics and his disappointment with the ways of the world."  San Antonio Express-News
