Delgado, who originates from Senegal, says “Art always has been my rescuer, my liberator; creatively, emotionally, and spiritually. I'm a self-taught painter, able to create in any media, always painting work that is straightforward and personal; work coming from a place within me that is constantly loud and growing.”
Delgado continues “I fill my canvases with intense and basic colors, crisply painted shapes, and meticulous detail. I make work without conventional representational techniques. I paint straightforward narratives, stories of my journey and memories of everyday experiences.
“I am in a powerful new place in my career as an artist. The beginning of a painting had never been a comfortable place for me. All the emotional and mental preparation would make me stiff. Now, I have nothing to hold back and have found a new journey altogether; trusting in whatever will occur.”
