Gabriel Delgado creates themed artwork that explores aspects of contemporary social and political events, ranging from Police Brutality, Animal Rights, Environmental Rights, Science, Economy, Immigration, Social Reform, and other relevant topics. His PEMDAS driven, and conceptually solvable Order of Operations mathematical equations bring to light the elegance of numerical and text-driven logic via an expressive scientific chalkboard aesthetic. Delgado immerses himself into areas of global conflict to meet with other artists and activists to gain a better understanding of the issues that he visually investigates. While Mexico in Delgado accompanies a Cultural Attaché of the Mexican government, to meet with the Zapatista Delegation from Chiapas, Mexico during the infamous Zapatista civil society uprising of 2000.
His Middle Eastern interests are born from a months-long expedition to Jordan, Syria, Israel, West Bank, Gaza Strip, and other parts of Palestine, where he meets with a variety of Political Artists, some living in exile and in refugee camps, who educate him about the social unrest and historical implications of the Middle Eastern Affairs. It is here in the Middle East, Gabriel Delgado is identified, detained, and jailed on suspicion of International Terrorism, ultimately cementing his political ideologies, and catapulting his intense scrutiny of the U.S. Government and its handling of international affairs.
Lisa Burgess of Burgess Modern + Contemporary states, "Gabriel Delgado is an artists' artist. He creates artworks that engage the viewer, prompts dialogue, and activates insightful conversations. These conceptual drawings are hypothetically solvable yet broaden the spectrum for conversation on the larger aspects of social justice and political discourse. He prompts the question, can we solve these issues in our society, not just the equations themselves."
Two new equations that BM+C is representing include "X-Press Pearl", a narrative discussing an environmental disaster in Sri Lanka and "Whitewashing"
Burgess Modern + Contemporary's presentation of Gabriel Delgado captures the full attention of the viewer, while creating opportunities to facilitate discussions on a multitude of subjects from academia to politics.
