Francisco Delgado was born in Cuidad Juárez and grew up in El Paso’s Segundo Barrio. Delgado’s “Bordeño” artworks are informed by the social and cultural struggles inherent in life on the Mexican and United States Border. Delgado explores conflicts in which the artwork questions problems of racism, identity struggles, Mexican and United States traditions, and U.S. Government’s policies effect on immigrants. He often uses dark humor and satire to depict his narratives.
