Direct from our beloved tierra, a street artist (and architect) who embellishes the walls of the world with flowers: Francisco Diaz, but can call it Pastel.
Diaz has painted murals in Mexico, Portugal, Italy, Australia, Spain and the USA.
Far from conventional architecture, I understand working on the street as an urban acupuncture. Modern cities are filled with “non-places” because of irregular and non-inclusive planning. So these paintings work to rescue the local identity (…)
I try to base my work on experiences. (…) I try to understand the conditions that the environment imposes and not arrive with an already ready concept about that space. Work with symbolism, with arrowheads and flowers. My plays start a dialogue about the nature of the man and his surroundings.
