José Delgado Zuñiga’s work is inspired by modern Latin American artists such as Oswaldo Guayasamín and the cartoon-like features used by the Mexican muralists of the 1920s and 30s.

The artist uses hard and soft edges which create tension in forming figurative heads, a central motif of the paintings. The shapes reflect and melts the interior spaces of toxic, traumatic, and physiological conditions; which expresses the chaos of global anxiety.

Zùñiga was born in Ventura, California in 1988 and received his MFA in Painting from Columbia University in 2017. He was a recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Emerging Artist Grant and the ACE Grant (Artist Community Engagement) as part of a collective Latin X- Files. Zùñiga is also a participant of the Bronx Museum (AIM) Artist In the Market. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
