About The Artwork

Tirigall's large painting, "A Glimpse of Mankind," is a stirring expressionist Street Art piece and a cry of resistance. Centered around the message, "You are killing a man," attributed to Ernesto "Che" Guevara, it directly confronts viewers with their roles in power and oppression systems. The canvas is filled with contemporary and futuristic symbols, like the Bitcoin logo and a coin marked "Billion" "Yen," nodding to our digitally influenced future. The work also hints at the profound influence of art and culture, symbolized by references to "The Creation of Adam," Olympic rings, and Bowie's "Blackstar". The Prague astronomical clock serves as a reminder of time's importance, mirroring Benjamin Franklin's advice not to squander time. The painting, available for sale, invites contemplation on life and death, perfection and decay, and the interconnectedness of all things.

Born in Buenos Aires in 1976 and now based in Spain, Diego Tirigall grew up in a family of antique dealers and art restorers, instilling in him a deep respect for art from a young age. A self-taught artist, Tirigall has developed a unique style that blends elements of neo-expressionism, art brut, and street art. His work is characterized by bold primary colors and a knack for deconstructing pop culture, offering a critique of modern life without dwelling on its darker aspects. Tirigall's art aims to activate critical reflection in the viewer, challenging them to decode and engage in meaningful debate on current issues like financial decentralization and screen addiction.
