Yosafat Delgado

This is a miniature model of a very typical street food dish and scene: tacos de canasta (tacos in a basket). Traditionally, they are offered on the streets by people riding bikes announcing “TACOOS, TACOS DE CANASTA”, hence the name. Yosafat Delgado is famous for the high level of detail and realism he achieves in his works, for this specific work he shares that he encountered many problems trying to replicate the blue bag that wraps the tacos and finding the right material. After many hours of trial and error he realized that the gloves he paints with were what he was looking for. Through his works, he renders tribute to the thousands of people that go to the streets every day in search of the means to support their families.
