Born in Venezuela but raised between Cumana, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing and San Francisco, Daniel Diaz-Tai has always deﬁned himself as a Latino-Asian male.
His multiple homes have strongly inﬂuenced his chosen career as a visual artist. While he began his career in the arts with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, he also earned a M.F.A in Painting from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco.
Daniel’s work developed from the need to ﬁnd common ground between his journeys. By creating his own language through painting and calligraphy, he discovered a process of full personal expression.
Daniel Diaz-Tai presents us with a series of Abstract Paintings layered with stories, emotion and texture. In these paintings, you can feel competing emotions stemming from the artist’s international journeys. His subconscious compositions encourage us to note the temporal nature and ups and downs of life. If you think about it, nothing is reality as each moment is ﬂeeting. Each line completes and complements the intensity of the other to unfold bold emotions and tell layered stories using asemic language.
Daniel Diaz-Tai’s artwork has been shown throughout the United States, Venezuela and Asia.
