After working for classical animation television series and as street caricaturist, Diego Morales completes a bachelor of Fine Arts at Concordia University in 2003. He then pursues a fascination for the human behavior in his artwork, describing attitudes by depicting characters on the spot while catching the atmosphere and mood of a scene.

Since 2008 Diego has been involved in several group exhibitions in Quebec and Ontario. His work was also presented in three solo shows, among them Time Out! at le Centre Culturel Simon Bolivar in 2009-2010. This exhibit shared a social reflection on the absurd and paradoxical nature of today’s society and the pressure it carries on the individual.

 

Diego’s artwork can be found in the Ville de Laval collection and among several private collections across Canada and Argentina.

 

He lives and works in Montreal.
