Carlos Delgado

The main subject in Carlos Delgado’s paintings is not the visual surface, instead the characteristic portraits reflects what is underneath the mask that we all wear in public. We all put up a facade towards the environment around us, the people we meet and our own feelings. But every once in a while, we let out a glimpse of what is laying underneath, be it when we avoid eye contact with someone on the streets or when we experience unexpected and sudden joy by the beauty of nature. This is what Carlos Delgado’s artistry is all about.

The artworks are created with rapid speed to mimic those fleeting moments of revelation. He doesn't stop to think or evaluate how to best portray a specific feeling or expression – he fearlessly steps into the emotion and uses all his experience and talent as an artist to illustrate it onto the canvas.

For Carlos Delgado, a portrait is never of one person, they are about all of us. The common feelings and experiences we share. He sees a world where humanity shares one planet but are not joined in commonality. Exploring and expressing how we can be more open, truer and more vulnerable to one another, by reminding us that we are all related in our emotions and experiences, is the foundation of his artistry.
