Deladeso is the art persona created by Richie Velazquez. Based out of Riverside California, he has been developing his Digital Death and Grime art aesthetic since 2012. As the originator of grime art, he pays homage to those that have molded himself into the Spookek that he is today!
Deladeso is fluent in multiple forms of media, with past work including projects that range from digital video to illustrations, to collaborations, to merchandise, to physical installations--prior collaborations include music videos by Getter and Randall Kirk II, branded campaigns with brands friendly to experiential content like Pabst Blue Ribbon, Samsung, and General Mills' Fruit Gushers in collaboration with Slushcult. Artists have praised Deladeso's unique "grime style" of retouching pop art images with colorful and whimsical accents of colorful animated grime, which, according to Richie, is inspired by "the grime of the city" that defined much of his experience growing up in Riverside, CA.
