Artist Bio: Carlos Delgado

Self1

Meet Carlos Delgado – awesome painter and all-around nice guy!  Carlos will be leading a workshop on Sneaker Art as part of the Central Neighbourhood project, I Heart Artz, which begins this coming Saturday.  I first met him at the inaugural gathering of artists signed to the PATCH Project roster a few years back.  I’ve been following his work ever since, and was delighted to get him on board for our most recent initiative.  (Far from a random encounter, it also turned out that he’d married a pal of mine from high school, all the way over in Hamilton!  Go figure.)

Born and raised in Colombia and currently living in Toronto, Carlos has been recognized for his work through a two-time finalist nomination for the TELUS and Toronto Arts Foundation’s Newcomer Artist Award (2014 and 2015). Carlos is currently represented by Walnut Contemporary Gallery in Toronto.

As an artist dedicated to art and social change, Carlos has created a youth sneaker art project which he has facilitated in Toronto’s priority neighborhoods and for which he has been awarded the 2016 Artist in Residence at the Power Plant Gallery’s Youth Power Up Program. Carlos will be offering a workshop on this same innovative theme through I Heart Artz – the most recent CNH creative initiative, funded through the Toronto Arts Council – beginning Saturday, January 16th from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.

As a live painter, Carlos has brought his unique style to diverse corporate and private events including the Toronto Pan Am Games Opening Reception in 2015.  We are pleased to have Carlos on board with us here at CNH and look forward to his fancy footwork in the New Year!  You can check out more of Carlos’s amazing work at: http://www.artcarlosdelgado.com
