Welcome to the Art Gallery of Diego Barboza
1945-2003

Award Winning International Artist 

Diego Barboza

1945-2003

Diego was born on February 4th 1945 in the Carabobo street of Maracaibo, Venezuela. Diego has made numerous solo and group exhibitions, obtaining rewards since 1963. He is represented in the most important museums of Venezuela, as well as in England, Brazil, Colombia and Cuba. In 1986 he was awarded the Municipal Visual Arts Award of the Municipal Council of the Federal District and in 1997 he received the National Prize for Plastic Arts granted by the National Council of Culture, CONAC. 


 Diego Barboza (1945) feels the need to relate to people, become a participant and communicate their emotional impressions, paying homage to the human being. This ludic-magical-religious participation is strengthened as part of their everyday life, involving them in the organization and elaboration of the objects that would come out in the processions of Holy Week, in the sharing as an altar boy of the religious services or in combing the Magdalena.


Their participatory experiences combined with the reencounter with the pictorial space will be recurrent in the artist, re-living them and re-creating them through their aesthetic proposal.
