Born in Mexico, Diego Anaya was an apprentice at Guillermo Canseco’s studio in Monterrey. Those first experiences with art were definitive. Diego Anaya continued learning the diverse disciplines: painting, drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. He was always very much into color and material. The relation of black color as a field where to get deeper and deeper into a burnt material, or into various layers of paint and carbon, confronts the viewer with sensual and mysterious artwork. The artist mainly uses cloth, wood canvases, and metal. Parallel to black, browns and coffee colors, that reveal the fire process he uses frequently, nowadays metal is offering him a challenge. Diego is doing sculpture, artists books, and asymmetrically flat art pieces that he presents as contemporary reliquaries.
