Young Artist Alcove:
David Delgado

October 26 - December 8, 2019

Artist statement:
"My work has a comic-book feeling to it.  I use various scenarios and contexts but most of them are taken from fantasy.  My work is heavily inspired by manga artists Eiichiro Oda and Yusuke Murata.  Linear perspective, creating the illusion of deep space and a feeling of movement are important parts of my work. Overall I create artwork for the sake of eye candy; purely to immerse the person in the artwork and be enthralled by it."
Through December 8, 2019
