Delio Delgado holds degrees from the National School of Visual Arts and Altos de Chavon School of Design in the Dominican Republic. His paintings, prints and installations have been exhibited in Canada and abroad. “The Poetry of Travel” was created as part of an exchange with Cuban artists and has since been shown in Hamilton, Toronto and Wichita, Kansas. His recent exhibition at You Me Gallery in Hamilton was reviewed by Regina Haggo, and by Carlos Francisco Elías.
Much of Delgado’s work addresses his experience of migrating from the Dominican Republic to Canada. He incorporates found and hand drawn imagery to create prints that explore notions of place and migration. Delgado’s formal compositional style is influenced by collage and numerical calculations. Recent paintings resonate with his physical and emotional struggle during the pandemic.
