Key West Artist
Michel Delgado is a self-taught artist who grew up in Senegal on the west coast of Africa. He is considered to be one of the most visionary Brut artists of our generation. He now lives in Key West, Florida where he applies his unique narrative vision to a variety of mediums.
Growing up in Senegal, on the west coast of Africa, life and
art shared the same space. They were indistinguishable. As a young boy in
Dakar I learned that art is the tool I have for a direct and honest
conversation with my own heart.
As a visionary artist, I fill my canvases with intense and basic
colors, crisply painted shapes, and meticulous detail. I make work without
conventional representational techniques; my work is free of metaphor,
irony, and paradox. I paint straightforward narratives, stories of my
journey and memories of everyday experiences.
