10. Pen Cayetano
Delvin “Pen” Cayetano MBE (born 1954 in Dangriga Town, Stann Creek District, Belize) is a Belizean artist and musician.
Cayetano is self-taught in the art of painting and music and claims his influences come from the native Garifuna culture and that of the Creoles. These are the two largest ethnically black groups in Belize.
Cayetano began painting in the late 1970s at a studio in Dangriga. He remained in Dangriga until 1990, when he moved to Germany. He has showcased all over the world and become one of Belize’s foremost cultural ambassadors. He and his German wife, Ingrid, returned to Dangriga in July 2009 and they opened the Pen Cayetano Studio Gallery 1 in August 2009.
Cayetano is currently married with three children (Malí, Beni, and Ibo). His family band, “The Cayetanos”, carry on their father’s musical traditions.
Cayetano was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire in the 2013 New Year Honours.
