Burgess Modern + Contemporary is proud to showcase work by Miami Artist, Gabriel Delgado at Art Miami 2021, along with Jedd Novatt, Andy Warhol, Alex Katz, David Salle, Tom Wesselmann, Roberto Matta, Miss Bugs, and Purvis Young, among others.
Gabriel Delgado graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from Kent State University, Ohio in 1998. As a Political Artist, Delgado creates themed artworks that explored the far-left political leanings of contemporary social and political events, ranging from Police Brutality, Animal Rights, Environmental Rights, Science, Economy, Immigration, Social Reform, and other relevant topics. From large scale political billboards, hyperrealist narrative drawings, multi-cultural explorations of international belief systems and Conceptual Mathematic and Algebraic Order of Operation equation drawings, Delgado uses a variety of techniques and applications to create works of art that not only educate but create visual avenues for unbiased political debates and community discussions.
His PEMDAS driven, and conceptually solvable Order of Operations mathematical equations bring to light the elegance of numerical and text-driven logic via an expressive scientific chalkboard aesthetic.
Dogecoin (DOGE) is a peer-to-peer, open-source cryptocurrency started by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus. It is considered an altcoin and an almost sarcastic meme coin. Launched in Dec. 2013, Dogecoin has the image of a Shiba Inu dog as its logo. While it was created seemingly as a joke, Dogecoin's blockchain still has merit. Its underlying technology is derived from Litecoin. Notable features of Dogecoin, which uses a scrypt algorithm, are its low price and unlimited supply. Elon Musk has greatly impacted the stability of the Dogecoin price by remarking about its existence in tweets or on live television, Musk’s quote of Dogecoin “Going to the Moon” is a reference to the unlimited rise in value of the cryptocurrency. Although dogecoin has witnessed several high-profile hacks, the market is still strong for this meme-driven currency, at one point rising over 7,000% in value.
