Ángel Delgado

Ángel Delgado (b. Havana, Cuba, 1965). He graduated from the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts in Havana and studied from 1984 to 1986 at the Higher Institute of the Arts in Havana. 

Through keen observation of the everyday and the ordinary, Delgado is trying to transform those objects or situations that are the daily step in photographs, drawings, videos, paintings, installations and performance, with a poetic that makes us reflect on our lives, about social processes or on the same processes of artistic creation. 

In 2005, he left Cuba and decided to stay permanently in Mexico City. He lived there until 2013, when he decided to immigrate to the United States. Delgado currently lives and works in Long Beach, CA. 

In 2004, Delgado obtained an artist residency at The Mattress Factory in Philadelphia, and then in 2008, he won the MOLAA award in the category of sculpture and installation in Long Beach, California. In 2016 he was part of The Fountainhead Residency,  Miami, FL.

Delgado has participated in more than 100 individual and collective exhibitions in more than fifteen countries around the world. His work is included in several private and public collections.
