David Delgado (b.1992) is a visual artist from Houston, Texas. Being a first generation Mexican American with a bilingual upbringing, symbolic language is a strong part of the artwork he creates. This presents itself as questioning and showcasing objects that often go disregarded. By doing so, exploring objects as placeholders for larger conversations of value in a capitalistic centered environment.
Delgado earned his BFA in Studio Art Sculpture from the University of Houston in 2014. He was an illustrator for the Daily Cougar Newspaper 2011-2014. From 2013-2021 he worked as a bronze patineur and office manager at a bronze art foundry that his family established. Afterwards, he returned to academics, teaching art to K-6 students with organizations such as MECA.
