Currently on display at Eleazar Delgado new studio is the artist’s “Behind the Lights” collection. Created in Miami and inspired by the city, the prolific work of Eleazar Delgado’s Behind the Lights collection is a true mirror image of the beauty and complexity behind Miami’s history. Born in Oklahoma and raised in Venezuela, Eleazar returned to Miami, a city he fell in love with at first sight during his youth.
He turned his love and inspiration into a beautiful collection honoring the original Miami benefactors with works entitled Julia, Flagler and Fisher, to name a few. While many choose to paint on canvas, Delgado paints on doors as a symbolic representation of the doors his subjects opened for Miami’s citizens.
“My work illuminates portals to expose the beautiful way color and light shape the relationship of Miami’s visionaries with the Magic City. Each subject chosen for this collection was a door to Miami’s development and enrichment. My visual relation tells a story, using native symbols of plants, animals, landmarks and those who had the vision to see behind the wilderness. Their enthusiasm and courage inspired this exploration of the people who shaped Miami,” said Delgado.
Eleazar Delgado has gone back to his origins, his inner voice; epic painting was his earliest fascination. Behind the Lights explores the relationship between history and art, fully illustrating the story of those who fashioned the Miami we know today. Pulling from this range of discipline, he uses bold, bright colors and geometric patterns, as his epic oil paintings take on a kinetic, 3-dimensional life. Delgado’s work honors Miami’s vibrant lifestyle and beautiful history in an expressionist yet abstract style.
Eleazar Delgado is a seasoned professional in the areas of architecture and interior design, US-born, Venezuelan-raised and Miami-based Eleazar Delgado has taken his Miami inspired vision, applying his research of reading between the lines and seeing behind the lights to present oil paintings as a 3-dimensional story.
