Diego Glazer (Mexican American Artist)
For as long as Diego Glazer can remember, he has been on a quest to convincingly represent on canvas what I see in the physical world, what he see's in his mind and what he feels. Diego's ideal is to find that exquisite middle ground between the three. As an artist Diego loves to find inspiration in unpredictable places and situations. It could be getting lost in a conversation, hearing a piece of music for the first time, or exploring landscapes in the countryside. He enjoys trying to tame the difficult medium that is oil paint, as well as the mess and accidents that happen when using it. One of his priorities as an artist has been to explore many different styles, mindsets and methods of painting that often have little to do with each other, and to bring them together in a coherent and satisfying way. Diego wants his paintings to transport the viewer into a dreamlike atmosphere, and at the same time give a familiar feeling. I want them to be beautiful physical objects that the viewer can get lost in, explore and ultimately be moved by. Diego currently lives in Denver, Colorado where the grandeur of nature permeates my work.

Rescuing books from the recycling bin, he transforms them into psychedelic (literally mind-expanding), exciting new 3-dimensional worlds of inexhaustible exploration and wonder, with just a blade. “To me, books contain life’s secrets; I like digging deeper because, while we can’t see all answers at once, we can glimpse the beauty of the interaction of chaos and order."
