Argentinian watercolor artist

Diego’s philosophy:

Art is a label, it is a way to summarize in a single word what any person does for the pure love of doing. Then society has overestimated that word, it has given it too exclusive meaning and in some cases it has given prices that keep people from being attracted to it. To express oneself and love through any creative process is art, from making the best toast of ham and cheese in the world to building a car with the latest technology. To leave the everyday mind to create, be it in the context that it is, is art. Fundamental seasoning? The passion. Passion is what feeds the flame of art, feeds research, continuous learning, exploration, experimentation and is not satisfied with the results, it always wants more. Art without passion is like a melted ice cream, it is still ice cream, but almost nobody wants to take it, because it has lost its essence.

Diego’s Story

Diego Eguinlian is an Argentine water colour artist. Self-taught since childhood and tireless student of innumerable techniques. After working in family businesses related to footwear, he decided to make custom-painted shoes by hand which ultimately led him to his true passion, art. He successfully worked with this art form from 2007 to 2013 and created more than 600 different original designs, which he ultimately used to paint more than 3000 pairs of shoes. He invented the “theory of the clock” technique that allowed him to copy natural scenes or photos and basic concepts based on observation and common criteria. Diego worked by commissions from 2013 to 2015 for high networth clients and high-level paintings using different media such as acrylics, oils and charcoals. He discovered watercolors in 2015 and become obsessively passionate about this beautiful technique. His work has been recognized throughout the country.

 

Education

My training is based on observation, theoretical research, experimentation and development of my own techniques to find a unique style. Since I was about eight years old my favorite hobbie was drawing and music, since they were the activities in which a natural ability stood out. After completing the primary and secondary (1983-1996), I decided to enter the National Conservatory of Music (1997-1998) and then the EMBA (music school of Buenos Aires) (1998-2000) in order to begin to train myself at an artistic level and with professional objectives. As the dates show, I could not keep awake that dream. But yes, I kept drawing, exploring, investigating and snooping in the painting, always as a hobby and a distraction, but with a lot of perseverance and interest.
