Born in Oklahoma and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, Eleazar Delgado studied architecture at the Universidad Central de Venezuela and also in Miami, where he fell in the love with the vivid colors, radiant sunshine and the gleaming colors of the night, which would later influence his choice to paint the story of Miami and the pioneering spirits that founded it, thus launching his professional artistic career.
Due to his dedication to the cultural and historic promotion of Miami, he has been awarded many projects and accolades by numerous organizations such as Dade Heritage Trust, Miami Dade Preservation League, HistoryMiami, and the Miami Short Film Festival.
Sea Grasses in the Sky, his commissioned mural atop McCormick Place in Downtown Miami delights thousands of commuters daily, as it is visible from I-95 and neighboring buildings.
Delgado’s vibrant and colorful perspective on Miami’s founders and leaders, like Henry Flagler and Julia Tuttle, and his interpretation of historical events, such as Billie Holiday’s performance at The Lyric in Overtown, have earned him much acclaim throughout Miami’s Art circles. As a result, his artwork and vision have generated features in The Miami Herald, Plum TV, CNN Español, Social Miami, Miami Magazine, Miami Art Guide, ArtCircuits, Ocean Drive, Brickell Magazine and 944, among others.
