Artist Biography:

Adrian Delgado graduated from California College of the Arts in 2014. Adrian currently works as a preporator (art handler) at SFMOMA's Collection Center. On his daily commute Adrian gathers inspiration for his content from observing the people he encounters and their pursuit. The Contrapposto series is a continuation of his two previous series and is a combination of representing the people he sees and the modern artwork and techniques he encounters daily.  

 

Adrian recently participated in  MACLA’s 6th Chicana/o Bicentennial and exhibited series, “Pursuit” at El Comalito Collective and “Unsung Heroes” at  Artiszen Cultural Arts Centerin Vallejo, California; the series were well received by the community. 

 

Adrian’s mediums include oil painting, mosaics, printmaking, and watercolors. He uses a combination of content, technique and execution to express emotion. Adrian uses art as a way understand himself and his surroundings. His work is meant to have a universal and personal connection.
