San Sebastian, 1961. A self-taught artist, Diego made his first creations in Bilbao in the mid-1980s. Since then he has shared studios with other artists, joined Arteleku and taken part in painting and drawing contests and exhibitions internationally.  He currently works out of his studio in the Gros area of San Sebastian, where he blends his work with written texts and his own way of describing the world.

PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE PROCESS

Book, it is my distance
in seeking exposure,
writing, my interpretation
of paintings.

Seeking the words,
which represent me,
my knowledge.

Expressing my artistic context,
my public distance.

Talking about the present,
about rest, about home, about creative improvisation.

Representing places of the mind.

Geometry provides explanations, circles, its changes
and connections between contexts.
