This kind of exhibition combines works in production (generally large formats) and finalized artworks. The purpose is quite clear : make Art alive in order to establish a real communion between the artist and his audience.
Diego Piccini da Todi then arouses many debates, bearing on the chosen themes as well as the techniques or the very purpose of Art.
But the artist's goal is also to analyze how people in the gallery perceive his work and its immediate evolution.
At this stage of the journey, there is no doubt that this type of experience has been more than formative... Note that this type of exhibition concerns only one only medium : drawing.
As Ingres put it, "design is the integrity of art". The artist has made it a point of honor to confirm the Master's statements.
Diego works on many formats, different types of paper, using the techniques of graphite, charcoal, sanguine, sepia, pastel, watercolor and Indian ink.
All drawings, illustrations and paintings presented by the artist are made from memory.
