Francisco Diaz sees modern cities full of “non-places” because of the irregular and not inclusive masterplanning. These places are the canvases for his paintings.

He works on experiences, considering the space where he gets to create his work:  a city, a rural space, an open space or a closed space. Working with symbolism like arrowheads and flora, the pieces begin a dialogue about the nature of man and his surroundings. The existential, real, pure and tragic elements, almost forgotten in modern society.
