Urban aesthetics and themes are predominant in the artwork of the artist Diego Guti, who reveals clear reflections about life on the streets and mass consumerism. The individuality of the human being approached from the reflection of the interests that we appreciate daily from each side of the social gap, is an important part of the artist’s inspiration.
