Diego creates his drawings and watercolors only from memory.
All the drawings shown in this section are classified into two categories. The "cartons" produced in front of the public, in general large formats, pushing the artist to release from his unconscious a basic graphic vocabulary. The second category regroups finalized and preserved drawings, always made from memory.
The period spent in Montreal, in the Belgo's galleries (523-521) for more than ten years, has allowed the artist to structure his creative approach by forcing him to actually understand what he saw, not what he just imagined.
A large audience witnessed the process (tens of thousands of people) from 2007 to 2016.
The objective was simple, logical, to allow Diego Piccini da Todi to free himself from study from life and too long creation sessions.
Please note that these photos are registered works of visual art, having been the subject of exhibitions.
The beginning (2007 - 2016)...
The studies below were carried out in a few seconds, without gum, without correction (graphite lead on Strathmore paper).
The objective ? Working and emphasing spontaneity of lines... In fact, what makes the drawing originality is that no matter the number of attempts, it is almost impossible to redo it identically with the same method.
