About this painting

Iconography of Modernity

In Reality Soup, crafted by Diego Tirigall—a full-time artist whose work resonates with the raw vibrancy of Street Art and the unfiltered expressionism reminiscent of Basquiat—the viewer is drawn into a visual dialogue that transcends mere observation. The skull, adorned with a tie, not only speaks to the fleeting nature of existence but also probes the complex interplay between personal identity and professional roles within our society. The tie emerges as a dual symbol: is it a chosen emblem of status or a marker of enforced conformity?

Satire of Consumption

The reimagined Campbell's soup can becomes a conduit for social critique in the series "Unhealthy Preserves". Beyond its role as a consumer good, the can is depicted as a vessel for the habits that consume the individual from within. The symbol of social media addiction, represented by this everyday item, questions the nourishment of the soul in our hyper-connected society. It prompts us to consider what we truly preserve in the digital age.

Symbolism and Meaning

The repeated mantra "RAN RAN" within the piece directly references the 'Radicalization Awareness Network' (RAN), highlighting the cyclical nature of radicalization on social media platforms. This element beckons the viewer to contemplate the dual aspects of collective memory: our capacity to remember and our propensity to repeat. The inclusion of concepts such as "Social Mobility" and the nod to "tabula rasa" encourage introspection on the potential for change against the backdrop of pervasive surveillance in modern society.

Visual Metaphors and Technique

The diamond motif, a staple in Tirigall's repertoire, stands as a beacon of resilience amidst the chaos of brushstrokes and the cacophony of symbols. This immutable diamond may well be a metaphor for the quest for authenticity in a world awash with fleeting images and messages. Tirigall's technique, employing enamel, acrylic, oil pastel, and oil stick, adds texture and vibrancy, amplifying the visual and emotional resonance of the piece.

Technology and Tradition

The juxtaposition of "AI" with "Reality Soap" within the artwork initiates a conversation between technological advancement and pop culture. Artificial intelligence, symbolized by "AI", contends with the triviality of "reality soaps", creating a contrast that prompts reflection on the role and impact of technology on our reality perception.

The Hidden Language

Scribbles masking words throughout the piece act as a veil over clear communication, revealing only the word "octopus". This textual fragment suggests an omnipresent, multifaceted entity, perhaps a metaphor for corporations or governments with their tentacular reach into various aspects of daily life.

With his bold use of the palette knife and expressive strokes, Tirigall's painting invites viewers to an experience that is as visual as it is introspective—a canvas where personal reflection and social critique are inextricably intertwined, reflecting the essence of contemporary urban street art and neo-expressionism."

Collector from the Get-go

As someone who’s been lucky enough to gather a modest collection of Tirigall’s pieces, it’s a little tough seeing the prices climb. Don’t get me wrong, it’s good news for my collection’s value – I mean, one of my friends even tried to buy a piece off me! Can you believe it? But let’s be real, I’m not in it to sell. I’d love to score a few more before they’re completely out of my reach. How about a break, Diego? I promise I’ll be on the lookout for any discounts that come my way! Ha! All jokes aside, you must know how much I cherish your work, and I truly wish you nothing but success.
