Diego Tirigall

I come from a digital art and motion graphics background, and became a self-taught painter exploring ideas I’ve always been drawn to and testing out new techniques, textures and mediums.

About me

Multidesciplinary Artist

Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1976 and currently based in Vigo (Spain), Diego Tirigall comes from a family of antique dealers and art restorers. Growing up in that environment, Tirigall developed a deep admiration and respect for a variety of art forms. 

A self-taught professional, Tirigall started his career designing motion graphics for television, film and advertising. After creating designs for print-on-demand companies, Tirigall subsequently licensed exclusive pieces for companies specializing in wall art.

True to his experimental approach, Tirigall has found a unique signature style, combining techniques, mixed media and materials from neo Expressionism, art brut and street art.

Tirigall uses text, shapes and drawings scrawled with expressive brushstrokes in primary colors as he sarcastically depicts fragmented pop culture ideas. 

Pablo Picasso, Antoni Tàpies and Jean-Michel Basquiat are among his greatest influences.

Diego Tirigall nació en Buenos Aires, Argentina, en 1976, y actualmente vive en Vigo, España. Desde pequeño y gracias a pertenecer a una familia de anticuarios y restauradores, Tirigall desarrolló una gran admiración y respeto por las distintas formas de arte.

De manera autodidacta, comenzó su carrera como motion graphic designer para televisión, cine y publicidad. Dio sus primeros pasos en el mundo del arte creando diseños para empresas de productos on demand y, más tarde, licenciando trabajos exclusivos a empresas especializadas en wall art.

Con el paso del tiempo, y siempre fiel a su enfoque experimental, Tirigall ha encontrado un estilo propio, difícil de encasillar, fusionando técnicas, medios y materiales del neoexpresionismo, el art brut y el street art.

Palabras, manchas, formas y dibujos garabateados con pinceladas expresivas y colores primarios son las herramientas usadas para representar con sarcasmo lo que suelen ser ideas fragmentadas de la cultura popular.

Entre sus influencias más importantes, se encuentran Pablo Picasso, Antoni Tàpies y Jean-Michel Basquiat.
