(born September 1, 1944 in Brooklyn, New York) is an African-American artist known for what has sometimes been called his “illusionistic”  style. He is apainter, muralist, printmaker, and illustrator. When Delsarte was growing up, he was surrounded by music including jazz, opera, musicals, and the blues. From this experience, as well as from his knowledge of African history and culture, he has drawn much of the inspiration for his art. Delsarte is now a professor of Fine Arts at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia where he resides. For the past 13 years his work has been exhibited around the United States.
