BIOGRAPHY

Delissalde is an American sculptor currently living in Denver, Colorado. He discovered and cultivated his intense love for the visual arts early in his life studying drawing, human anatomy and painting at the ATELIER GUILLMAN under artist painter M. Guillen — 1971 to 1978 — and art history and sculpture at the NATIONAL SCHOOL OF SCULPTURE AND PAINTING — 1977 to 1978 — in Mexico City, the city of his birth. 

Delissalde early training in classical European sculpting and painting and his formal academic degrees in the fields of chemical engineering (B.Sc.), theology (Th.M.) and philosophy (Ph.D.), show him as an artist genuinely and relentlessly engaged in the human quest for Beauty. His designs are nurtured through a constant study of sculpture in art museums and public monuments throughout the United States and Europe.

Delissalde’s sculptures are mainly in bronze and his genre of choice is modern figurative. His work announces and transmits the most intense sentiments experienced by the human condition. ​A recent work is a multi-sculpture public project — four monumental bronze sculptures commissioned by the State of Wyoming — installed in the interior of the Dome of the Capitol Building in July 2019.

Since 2008 the artist works in his atelier in Denver; he also designs his works in his atelier in Aix-en-Provence, France. His work is prized by collectors in the United States, France, Spain, Portugal and Mexico.
