Photographs by Pablo Delano ~ Arte Urbano | Puerto Rico | Urban Art, Curated by Nitza Tufiño

The visual arts in Puerto Rico have a rich history of social engagement as well as connections to graphic arts movements throughout Latin America, and the globe. The island’s current dynamic urban art scene has garnered attention from numerous art critics, magazines, and newspapers because of its quality and scope.

From complex, wry graffiti to sophisticated murals on a range of themes, painted walls produced by local, as well as international artists, can be found throughout the cities and towns of the island. Some of these murals are the result of urban art festivals such as Santurce es Ley.

The photographs in this exhibition, taken between 2013 and 2016, begin to document this phenomenon, centered around the Santurce district of the city of San Juan, but also including work from other towns.

Pablo Delano was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Exhibitions of Pablo Delano’s photographs have been held in galleries and museums throughout the USA, Latin America, Europe and the Caribbean. He has published several books of photography including In Trinidad (Ian Randle, 2008). Delano is currently Professor of Fine Arts at Trinity College, Hartford CT and Co-Director of the Center for Caribbean Studies at Trinity College. For more information please see www.pablodelano.com
