Paint It Black
AMONG the songs of The Rolling Stones, they were preparing to record was Paint It Black – cynical, nasty, skeptical, rude… The lyrics and the mood of the songs fitted with the kids’ disenchantment with the grown-up world of America in 1966. Meanwhile, the foreboding energy of “Paint It Black” was picked up by the American troops, who identified with the song’s implicit fury and despair while valiantly trying to survive in an increasingly horrific and pointless war.
With Diego imagination and creation poured into a very simple neat painting through his palette knife painted using colored acrylic painted with opposite both images side in separately canvas.

ON a canvas measuring of 30 x 30 cm, Diego tries to paint what is a problem in big cities in the world, namely air pollution is the presence of one or more physical, chemical, or biological substances in the atmosphere in quantities that can harm the health of humans, animals, and plants, interfere with aesthetics and comfort, or damage property.
Diego captures the dimensions of human life described in terms of air pollution which can affect human health as badly as air pollution in open spaces. Diego’s expression is what sometimes we all forget about the main flow of life in this world.

Shade of Christmas Tree
DIEGO is still continuing to explore and experiment the beauty of ‘Christmas Tree’ contemporary art here in his painting. For Diego, the Christmas tree and all the splendor that goes with it, should not only be viewed symbolically but, inviting to go further and dive deeper, to explore and find the content of values, meanings and meanings that go with it.
