Diego has a very intense background and history with art. He attended an art restoration high school and eventually moved towards graphic work. This recently new player in the art world caught his break with a memorial piece for Amy Winehouse, which lead him to an interview on MTV France and the circulation of his clip on all music channels.
The body of work that grabbed my attention was his graphic drawings coupled with pictures of food! They are less serious, and it took him a while to come to terms with art for fun’s sake versus his formal training in restoration. This work is fun and keeps Diego inspired.
His integration of food into his drawings shows an interesting perspective on drawing into space. He uses things us illustrators use everyday, food and doodling, and combines them in a very clever and comedic way. The work is very fresh and original.
