The work of Angel Delgado constantly makes references to individual freedom or the lack of it. His work is largely based on the limitations, restrictions, prohibitions, controls and lack of freedom that you are constantly imposed on human beings in society.
Through keen observation of the everyday and the ordinary, Delgado is trying to transform those objects or situations that are the daily step in photographs, videos, paintings, installations, performance etc, with a poetic that makes us reflect on our lives, about social processes or on the same processes of artistic creation.
