Delfin Finley grew up in South Central Los Angeles and always felt a great connection to the art that sprouted around him. Instead of letting his spirit sink with the chipped paint and broken windows of the abandoned buildings, he saw beauty in the vibrant colors and lines of the graffiti embellishing the alleys. He found even more inspiration in the people that found their voice through a spray can. He was born with a need to journal his experiences through drawing and later through oil painting. He speaks through his images, which flow more easily than words. His portraits convey the emotion and angst of love lost, the pain of depression, racism and ultimately the joy and beauty of a moment forever captured on canvas. b.1994 Los Angeles, California Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA EDUCATION Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA GROUP EXHIBITIONS 2016 LA Art Show 2016, Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA Cannibal Flower 15th Anniversary, Art Church, Los Angeles, CA Smashing Into 2016 - Smash Gallery, San Francisco, CA Year of the Monkey- GR2 Gallery, Los Angeles, CA 2015 Post-It Show 11 - GR2 Gallery, Los Angeles, CA Falling Out of Form - Smash Gallery, San Francisco, CA Make Their Gold Teeth Ache - Legion Arts - Cedar Rapids, IA Familiar Deconstructed - Smash Gallery, San Francisco, CA Make Their Gold Teeth Ache - Moberg Gallery, Des Moines, IA Manifest Justice - Pop-up Art Show, Los Angeles, CA Gauntlet Gallery 12x12 - Gauntlet Gallery, San Francisco, CA Art Center Gallery, Pasadena, CA Cannibal Flower - Astroetic Studios, Los Angeles, CA Itty Bitty Art Show - Lois Lambert Gallery, Los Angeles, CA This is Happening - Pi Gallery, Los Angeles, CA Cannibal Flower - 1052 Olive, Los Angeles, CA Text and Pictures - GR2, Los Angeles, CA 2014 Post-It Show X - GR2 Gallery, Los Angeles, CA Inagural Group Show - Exact Science Gallery, Los Angeles, CA Bright Ideas - Gabba Gabba Gallery, Los Angeles, CA The Bridge Between Us - 11:11 ACC Gallery, SFV Cannibal Flower - Think Tank Gallery, Los Angeles, CA I (Heart) LA - Jeannie Madsen Gallery, Los Angeles, CA Cannibal Flower - 715 Garland, Los Angeles, CA This is Happening - Pi Gallery, Los Angeles, CA Itty Bitty Art Show - Lois Lambert Gallery, Los Angeles, CA Cannibal Flower - 1052 Olive, Los Angeles, CA Art Center Gallery, Pasadena, CA Year of the Horse - GR2 Gallery, Los Angeles, CA 2013 Post-it Show 9 - GR2, Los Angeles, CA PUBLICATIONS 2016 BL!SSS Magazine - Issue #101 New American Paintings – 119 Pacific Coast 2015 City of Los Angeles African American Heritage Month Calendar & Cultural Guide 2014 {E-VOLVED} Tattoo & Fine Art Magazine
