Interview: Diego de Oliveira

Diêgo de Oliveira is a Brazilian artist, born in Acopiara, in the state of Ceará, majoring in Visual Arts at the Regional University of CaririURCA. Interested in discussing issues related to the male universe, his work focuses primarily on the representation of the figure of the man, more precisely from the construction of self portraits, especially when in 2009 began the graduation, where he starts his first photography experiments, after which he cures the project Cinema Imóvel (2011) on imaginary film posters. His pictures always strongly idyllic, show clearly the signs that proves important changes in his way of being a contemporary man and they reveal autobiagraphic elements.

Luca Curci – Your work has just been exhibited during MORPHOS – Sustainable Empires in Venice: can you talk about your personal experience in Venice with International ArtExpo?

Diego de Oliveira – Unfortunately I could not be physically present in Venice during the event, but my job was there! It was my first participation in an international exhibition of this size, also having my work exhibited at a major city known for the dissemination of local and international artists and happening in the same period as the Biennale of Architecture and seen by people around the world.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

D. d. O – Myself portrait was executed from my research and concerns of the man’s image nowadays. The man in the plural that can count multiple identities on their way to view, enjoy and present to the world and the universe. In this work I place myself as a reference of this man! My work is part of a more direct and traditional form of the festival’s theme: Pixels Identities, the junction of the pixels forming a picture portrayed of my identity.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

D. d. O – I’ve been working on my research with the man and productions in photography relationship, installation and video art. I am still developing my project: Cinema Imóvel, since 2011, in which I produce posters for imaginary films putting myself as the protagonist.

L. C. – What is art for you?

D. d. O – For me, art is all knowledge acquired from studies where part of my personal journey and human anxieties come together in a production. Those can be either two-dimensional or three-dimensional.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

D. d. O – An exceptional team! I received all the necessary information on how the event was taking place, the success of the exhibition and therefore the extension of the period of five more days. A team that appreciates what you’re doing. By e-mail, the Curator, Architect Luca Curci showed all his respect and care for the artists.

L. C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organization can represent an opportunity for artists?

D. d. O – It surely is a great opportunity. The event propagation is huge and the artist’s work is being seen and publicized to art critics, gallery owners, museum directors, collectors and art enthusiasts. Those will give the artist a positive leap in his career; primarily for emerging artists.
