Dalton Gata (b. 1977 in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba), graduated in 2005 from the Escuela de Diseño Altos del Chavón in Santo Domingo, DR with a BFA in Fashion Design. He worked as a designer producing two collections of his own before turning full time into art. His visual universe blends popular culture with personal relationships. Lovers, pets, internet findings, music, fashion, drag, interior design, fantastical creatures, friends and memory, are a few of the elements that inhabit his intimate and fascinating universe. He has exhibited widely in the Dominican Republic and the caribbean including the 27th National Biennial of Visual Arts, Santo Domingo (2013), Ramos Mederos Gallery, Santo Domingo (2014), Lucy Garcia Gallery, Santo Domingo (2015, 2016, 2017), and the Spanish Cultural Center of Santo Domingo (2016), as well as Embajada Gallery, San Juan (2018).  Gata lives and works in Coamo, Puerto Rico.
