Nazaury Delgado is a digital artist from the Bronx who uses Photoshop to create evocative and surreal images.
He begins the process with a photograph of himself or others, which he then overlays with another photo collage. The entire composition is then faded together to make the final product.
Delgado is nineteen years old and is currently attending the Fashion Institute of Technology on a full scholarship.
While he was a participant in an arts program for at-risk teens in the Bronx, Delgado’s teachers were amazed when they saw the digital photographs that he had created on his iPod Touch.
One of them, Neil Waldman, said of his art that “There are some people who have an innate ability to create spectacle, something innate that you can’t teach.”
In this post, we’ve compiled some of his most exceptional works that are sure to inspire you… Further information and links can be found below the image collection.
Delgado’s work was brought to WDD’s attention thanks to a post we did a while back for Jordan S. Dill. Jordan has since created a page for Nazaury on his website to collect donations to support this amazing artist.
