Hugo Diaz, born in San Cristóbal, Táchira State, Venezuela, in 1965, lives in Miami, FL, since 2003. A self-taught artist, he has a degree in Engineering of Computer Systems from the Metropolitan University, Caracas, Venezuela. Diaz also went to several universities to tackle diverse career studies, such as the Cristóbal Rojas School of Art in 1987 and the Faculty of Architecture at the Central University of Venezuela, booth in Caracas. As an Artist Hugo Diaz is an important member of what we could call ‘the new generation of Venezuelan Kinetic Art’. This art is based on the aesthetic of real movement and the virtual in the geometric abstraction, as created using combined simple geometric forms in subjective compositions on unreal spaces. This art is set out to go beyond what has been reached through intuition and is necessary an errorless rigorous method to achieve it. The speech of the Artist Hugo Diaz is complemented with an exaltation of two diverse spatial dimensions to represent a three-dimensional reality. Pictorially his work is also based on optical illusions obtained by retinal vibration and by taking advantage of the impossibility for our eyes to simultaneously watch two contrasted surfaces that are intensely and brightly colored. Throughout his career, Diaz has been constant in the search of developing his interest in color, the line, the light and the figurative thing, integrating them at the same time as managing to produce the impression of the energy in movement. His work encompasses geometric abstract forms, figurative color, lines, light and elements to create an unforgettable visual experience. Inspired by the international movements of Geometric and Kinetic Art initiated by masters such as Israeli artist Yaacov Agam (b. 1928), French-Hungarian artist Victor Vasarely (b. 1906, d. 1997), as well as Venezuelan Kinetic Art masters Jesús Rafael Soto (b. 1923, d. 2005) and Carlos Cruz-Diez (b. 1923), it is important to highlight that Hugo Diaz has reached his own new dimension, going beyond them and creating a novel innovative reading for the Geometric Art genre. Viewers were able to enjoy his unique Kinetic Installation-Tribute to the Masters at Contemporary Art Projects USA booth in Red Dot Art Fair 2019 during Art Basel Miami Week.
