Diogo Navarro, Portuguese artist, was born in Mozambique in 1973. He is an artist especially interested in expressing the pictorial potential of various materials. His works on canvas or wood are made of an assembly of materials in which light is often the main actor. Studied Art (National Fine Arts Society in Lisbon), printmaking, graphic design and virtual reality. He held 40 solo exhibitions and participated in about 100 conferences.
From the presentation text in the catalog by José Manuel Arrobas: “Diogo has been growing inwardly as it expands and allows his thinking to expand into what he paints. Little by little, with the brush and the spatula, and the colors of many colors, taking firm steps towards the existential principle, the possibility of transcending itself. (…) And he is born and reborn in a constant search for the colors and loves that he lives, why he goes through, where he is lost and remembering the boy who at four years old offered his grandfather his first painting. And all in Diogo’s hands, in those hands that think and feel. ”
