About the artist

Carlos Díaz’s paintings highlights the poetic force of contemporary urban landscape.

The artist captures the light magnificently, reflections and colors of cities where traces of everyday life are seen, which he paints without tricks or deception, with its beauty and flaws. He does not idealize reality but captures it, emphasizing its beauty and its ability to suggest.

The city of Carlos Díaz seduces you by its atmosphere, its transparent and vibrant light, the colors of its buildings and the vitality that you can see in its streets, although it paints them empty of people… an amazing city, sometimes hard, but also human and breathable, treated with a realism of evident modernity that is no stranger to commitment.

Carlos Díaz is a relevant value within contemporary Catalan realistic painting. In this area, he has participated in the most important institutional exhibitions that have been held in the last fifteen years, not only in Barcelona. Apart from his numerous exhibitions in Barcelona galleries, his work has also been presented in Chicago, Madrid, Miami and Vienna, among others. He has obtained very outstanding prizes.
