Ann Turley – Country – Artist
Victor Delfin, a leading sculptor and painter living in Lima, Peru is inspired by a pre-Incan culture known as the Paracas. Their art was filled with colorful and living images. Delifin’s work is seen as mysterious and magical, transmitting some of the world view of this disappeared nation. His artwork portrays strong political themes and he uses a wide variety of materials. Because of his multiple art styles, Delfin is often seen as an experimentalist.
Delfin’s use of color blocking drew me to his artwork. I enjoy working in whimsical style and felt I could imitate Defin with my artwork. While not meant to totally remind you of Delfin, it should at the very least bring a smile to your face.
