Daniel Martin Diaz’s Eloquent Dead

Daniel’s art is a modern day take on old school paintings - yellowed like papyrus and mysteriously somber like church stained glass windows. His beautiful ability to merge decorative motifs, with Gothic calligraphy and iconic imagery is uncanny. With his Hispanic background, death and religion obviously play a predominant role in his works, creating a poetic and surreal afterlife of their very own. Weathered and mysterious, his art speaks richly of a secret historical  alchemy.
