Michel Delgado Key West Florida

The awesome painting was my favorite at the State St (Ann Arbor) Area Art Fair. Not that I saw every painting in the huge Fair(s). I plan to go see the Main St Fair today..

Here is a bit about Michel from his WEBSITE

Michel Delgado is a self-taught artist who grew up in Senegal on the west coast of Africa. He is considered to be one of the most visionary Brut artists of our generation. He now lives in Key West, Florida where he applies his unique narrative vision to a variety of mediums.
Artist Statement

Growing up in Senegal, on the west coast of Africa, life and art shared the same space. They were indistinguishable. As a young boy in Dakar I learned that art is the tool I have for a direct and honest conversation with my own heart.

Art always has been my rescuer, my liberator – creatively, emotionally, spiritually. I’m a self-taught painter, able to create in any media, always painting work that is straightforward and personal, work coming from a place within me that is constantly loud and growing.

Humberto Hernandez

Humberto was a fun guy to meet! His work is gorgeous and we loved his wife so much! Here she is... Didn't get her name sorry but she is Mrs. Humberto....

Humberto Hernandez practices the art of silver smithing to make beautiful, hand fabricated pieces of jewelry. Growing up, he learned many techniques from his grandfather, who also worked with silver. He continues to learn taking various classes and by the experimental work in his studio.

Humberto loves the process of creating a beautiful piece of adornment from nothing but a sheet of silver, wire and stones. Each piece is cut, filed, formed, textured, soldered, stone set and polished all by hand, resulting in pieces that are a joy to wear.

His pieces are made from silver with accents of gold, copper and brass. He hand selects beautiful, unusual stones and incorporates them into his pieces using bezel settings.

Humberto imagines the feel of the art and adds texture to his pieces with reticulation, matte finish and/or patina. He introduces a new line of jewelry each year consisting of pendants, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings. Humberto carefully handcrafts each piece to be enjoyed by many. See Humberto's WEBSITE
