Michael Delgado makes paintings inspired by pulp fiction covers and 60′s era movie posters. Delgado references a host of painting styles from the time period, specifically California based painters. The paintings are comprised in a series of panels, often not designed from inception to be arranged in a particular way, but rather “mixed and matched” after Delgado feels there are enough panels from which to assemble several paintings.
Delgado received a BFA from the University of Southern California and was an art writer for The LA Weekly as well as the Editor of the Journal, the quarterlypublication of the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art.
