Discover Miguel Delie's Colorful Journey Back in Time through contemporary art

Miguel Delie, a visionary artist from Belgium, crafts artworks that bridge the realms of nostalgia and contemporary art through the imaginative use of found objects.

His creations are vivid celebrations of childhood, pulsating with life and color, taking viewers on a journey back to their earliest memories of play and wonder.

"My work brings together a vivacious cast of cartoon characters that are pulsating with nostalgia and childhood memories."- Miguel Delie

Delie specializes in mixed media, using everyday items to construct scenes that strip found objects of their original context and transform them into expressions of pure joy.

This process not only recaptures the carefree essence of childhood but also invites contemplation of the underlying systems of value that shape our adult lives.
