Michael Delia (USA b.1963) is an artist/musician whose work spans a wide range of disciplines and media. His work has encompassed paintings, sculpture, installations, and sound art as well as music performances. 

He is currently based in New Jersey and Prague, CZ. Delia received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Moravian College in 1985 and after moving to NYC in 1987 he received an MFA degree in Sculpture from the School of Visual arts.

Following graduate studies Delia continued to live and work in New York creating sculpture from found objects which were inspired by minimalism and african art. This period coincided with an interest in the downtown new music/improv scene happening at the Knitting Factory and in concert series' at the Alternative museum, Roulette, and Experimental Intermedia. This led to early experiments in sound using homemade percussion and african kalimba's(Thumb Piano's).

 Sound was introduced as an element into his sculptural installations and found object sculptures resulting in homemade musical instruments and objects. In 1992 he traveled to Czechoslovakia where he participated in the first Hermit symposium in Plasy. Here he began artistic and musical collaborations with Czech artists and musicians which continue to the present time. Recent activities being his participation in the interactive sound and light exhibitions "Orbis Pictus" and "Play" which have traveled from Prague throughout Czech Republic,

Europe, Canada and New York. Currently "Play" is being presented at Malostranske Besede in Prague throughout 2013.
