Anthony Michael Diaz
I believe in channelling my creative urges in order to produce new and unique ways to make Art. The inspiration for my work is the miracle of life and what us humans can achieve living it. The techniques I use are born out of a combination of my education, training and experience, which allows my perspective as an artist to remain unconventional yet contemporary. Art is how I offer new ways of viewing the world and rejoicing in it's creation.
"Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art."- Andy Warhol
Vincent Van Gogh
Although I use a variety of materials and processes throughout my work, my methodology always stays the same. The nature of my art slowly works into the heads of my fans. Once they recognize a general pattern, they are able to break away and observe the work with newly objective eyes. Below are a list of my current and past exhibitions.
