Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1976 and currently based in Vigo (Spain), Diego Tirigall comes from a family of antique dealers and art restorers. Growing up in that environment, Tirigall developed a deep admiration and respect for a variety of art forms.
A self-taught professional, Tirigall started his career designing motion graphics for television, film and advertising. After creating designs for print-on-demand companies, Tirigall subsequently licensed exclusive pieces for companies specializing in wall art.
True to his experimental approach, Tirigall has found a unique signature style, combining techniques, mixed media and materials from neo Expressionism, art brut and street art.
Tirigall uses text, shapes and drawings scrawled with expressive brushstrokes in primary colors as he sarcastically depicts fragmented pop culture ideas.
Pablo Picasso, Antoni Tàpies and Jean-Michel Basquiat are among his greatest influences.
I chose the long road – I never received any formal art training. Basically, I’ve learned to roll with the punches. And even though this took me more than 20 years working as a Graphic Designer, Motion Graphic Designer and Art Director, now I have no doubt that if you want to achieve something different, you need to do something different from the rest of the pack.
