In this clip a brief interview with the artist talking about what influences his art:
The artist’s grandfather was also a famous painter named Roberto Juan Diago Querol. His grandfather lived from 1920 to 1955.
Juan Roberto Diago creates interesting visual images. His faces remind me of the famous Cuban printmaker who committed suicide in her early thirties, Belkis Ayon.
From a design standpoint Diago creates figures with very interesting shapes. His work also reminds me of the mosaic covered homes seen in Portugal.
