A Creative Space at the Ocean’s Edge

Posted on | September 22, 2010 | 3 Comments

It is a rare and priceless treat to peek into the space where someone creates art. It is even more extraordinary to meet the artist, hear his voice, and have the opportunity to thank him, in person, for his contribution to making the world a more beautiful place. I had this opportunity with Peruvian artist Victor Delfín a few days ago in Lima. At age 83, Delfín still works daily in the stunning studio he designed at the edge of the Pacific Ocean in Lima’s Barranco neighborhood. His vibrant daughter, Lilian, runs a bed and breakfast on site called Second Home Peru, which also serves as a gallery for Delfín’s works. Below are a few snippets of his work, the gallery, and studio space. If you ever find yourself in Lima, I’d highly recommend staying at Second Home for a night or two. It’s impossible not to walk away inspired.

    Just caught up on your blog. Your trip seems like it was phenomenal.

    And might I say your blog is looking as classy, organized, and sharp as you m’dear.
