Delfin-Four Red Birds and Flower.jpg (45205 bytes)
Victor Delfin found the source of his inspiration in the ancient Paracan culture of Peru, part of the broader Incan civilization. Delfin's paintings and tapestries of birds reveals the depth of his pre-Hispanic mythological roots. There is a certain mystery and magical halo that encircles his compositions.
Graphic in analysis, Delfin's paintings translate a conceptual dynamic which identifies with and yet is distingished from folk art. It is an art which springs from roots in the heart and wings in the subconscious. Delfin has captured the sensitivity and deep identification which characterizes the Peruvian Indian relationship with natural forces.
Delfin is proud of his place in the unoroken heritage of Peruvian art from pre-Paracan times to present. He has absorbed this influence and incorporated it into his own expression.
Delfin's tapestries can be traced back to the colorful, traditional mantles worn by the Paracans 500 to 800 years ago. The Incan civilization is renowned as being an advanced culture. Delfin's use of Incan symbols reestablishes links with the past that could very well hold indications of our future.
Delfin obtains an unusual vitality in any medium from sculpture to tapestry. Delfin feels the artist should be versatile. "One should have an abundance of criterion in the creation process, that is how one defines a true artist." His fertile imagination and outstanding skills translate his message of overflowing passion and love for the essence of the Incan culture.
Delfin was born in Lobitos, Piura, Peru, in 1927. He studied painting and drawing at the School of Fine Arts in Lima, and, upon graduation, directed the Regional Schools of Art of Puno and Ayacucho.
One of the students was Carlos Arana Castenada, the reclusive author of several best selling books about the mushrooms and sorcery cults of the Yaqui Indians in central Mexico. Others include Guzmann, the Parisian sculptor; Villegas, the Colombia painter; and Ouintanilla, who emigrated from the mountainous interior town of Cuzco to Europe eventually to become a major painter in Paris. Among these men a strong solidarity grew. They learned from each other the creative process. Ideas were exchanged but most of their communication was made through their work. At the academy, the students did not sign their work. No one had trouble connecting an artist to a painting. Each artist, in his turn, perceived and recorded the joys and sorrows that have troubled the world since man first became aware of his self-consciousness.

Victor Delfín

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Victor Delfín (born 20 December 1927 in Lobitos, Peru) is one of the leading sculptors and painters in Peru.
He is best known for his monumental El Beso (the kiss), a large sculpture unveiled in 1993 in the "Love Park" by the Pacific Ocean in the Miraflores district of Lima. Many newlyweds visit the park to pose in front of the sculpture. "It also draws throngs of lovers from all areas of Lima celebrating Valentine's Day each February 14."[1]
Delfín has a worldwide reputation; his art has been exhibited across South and North America and is housed in major museum and private collections.[2] Delfín is highly regarded for his massive metalwork sculptures of birds, horses and other animals, as well as sensual, often sexually-charged paintings.[3] His art can also have an strong political theme, such as 1996 chronicle that denounced, with great irony, the corruption and authoritarianism during the regime of Alberto Fujimori. Delfín's studio, in the artistic Barranco District of Lima, overlooks the ocean. His house, filled with his paintings and sculptures, is now a bed-and-breakfast run by his daughter.
Delfín works with a range of materials—wood, metal, canvas, even polychrome acrylics and aluminum. "One of the main distinguishing features of Delfín's work is that in the context of experimentalism, which at the time was mainly focused on art styles, systems and institutions and would lead to a crisis of representation and an ensuing widening of the material possibilities of production in plastic arts, Delfín also took it upon himself to ensure the continuity of a creative current socially subordinated to the current proclaimed as 'art' by modernist idealism."[4]
Delfín was the youngest child in a poor family of a welder in Lobitos, a fishing village, and grew up watching his father forge metals in his workshop.[5] He graduated from the National School of Fine Arts in Lima (es:Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes de Lima) in 1958. In 1959, he was appointed director of Puno School of Fine Arts. After a brief stint as an art teacher in Chile, he set up his workshop in Barranco in 1965. In 1967, he was awarded first prize in the category of contemporary folk art at the Folk Art biennial in Lima. Many other awards and honors have followed, and Delfín has exerted great influence over the development of Peruvian art in the later half of the 20th century.[6]
Delfín helped organize writers and authors in opposition to Fujimori and in 1995 participated in the Caucus for Peace, which brought together artists to protest the threat of conflict between Peru and Ecuador. In 2000, Delfín addressed young Peruvians in an open letter, encouraging their protests but warning "of a looming struggle against the dictator retaking power."[7]

    Victor Delfín



    Víctor Delfín (Lobitos, Piura – Perú 1927).
    Escultor, pintor, artesano. Estudiante de la Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes desde la segunda mitad de los años Cuarenta. Su primera exposición individual en Lima se realiza en 1966 con su serie de Retablos confeccionados con plomo, cerámica y madera, dando una original continuidad al género tradicional. Durante los siguientes años inicia sus trabajos escultóricos a partir de chatarra y piezas de metal mecánica en desuso (serie Bestiario o Signos del Zodiaco).
    Su despunte en la escena internacional se realiza con la muestra itinerante Aves de América, a inicios de los años Setenta. En los últimos años, su producción ha acentuado un interés paralelo por la defensa de los derechos humanos, la vida política y la institucionalidad cultural en el país. En el 2007 decide dar a conocer una serie de cuentos y artículos, la mayoría de los cuales han sido publicados en revistas y diarios de la capital, y excepcionalmente en el Diario Le Monde, de París, Francia.
