Carlos Delgado

An artist creating solutions for artists

Carlos Delgado is a skilled creator from Chicago and expresses himself in many mediums. He was offered the chance to provide live art at an Educational non-profit Event in Downtown Chicago. 

This project was focused deeply on his connection to creating a solution for artists on the go. 

With handpicked textiles, high-quality materials, and a creative enginuity, he forged notebooks with built-in storage for writing utensils and tools. 

I was offered the amazing opportunity to tell the story of this day. I directed, recorded and edited this short film that gives light to the depths of his creativity!
