Raul Diaz

Raul Diaz was born in 1952 in Cordoba, Argentina, where he continues to live and produce his art. Although Diaz studied architecture, he could not avoid the overwhelming call within himself to be a painter. Self-taught as such, he has emerged as one of the most prominent artists in Argentina. Raul Diaz has held shows all over South America and is included in numerous major collections.

His dream-like paintings create ethereal textured environments, which are both mysterious and compelling. Through his technical invention and virtuoso creation of atmosphere in the physical surface of the paintings, Diaz explores the inner parts of the human soul. Undeniably nostalgic, the paintings are a look at the child we all once were, while revealing the anxieties and obsessions of the artist's own spiritual adventure.
