Raul Diaz

Journey

January 17 - February 28, 2015

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 and has emerged as one of the most prominent artists in Argentina.

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.
