Exposición - Las Complejidades Culturales, al ulterior espacio de conciencia - Diego Urqui

Diego Urquijo from his artistic work presents us in his work a dominant perspective of the existential crisis of humanity at this time, from it a complex environment emerges, where current pathologies have triggered damage and neurosis in the human being in the midst of personal dramas that surround the populations in which insecurity in its multiple facets, competition, violence, poverty predominate, giving rise to an atmosphere charged with anguish in its different biologically somatized psychic manifestations, and that move the creation of defenses to alleviate the suffering.

Investigate your environment with the tools of art, from instinct without intellectualizing or asking too many questions in some stages.

The content of the painting is its own self-conclusive theme (Metapainting). Current images linked to human behavior arrive on his canvas and other supports for visual expression. With an attentive look at contemporary problems, internal states and what is subtly revealed.

In this solo exhibition, we explore the depths of cultural complexity and its connection to a deeper level of consciousness. From the artist's perspective, we delve into the sensitive spaces of existence, both tangible and intangible, to expand our sensitive knowledge of human experience. Through painting, the artist invites us to contemplate the coexistence of intense and unexpected forms, discovering gestures, looks and feelings that often go unnoticed in our fast-paced world.


An introspective journey that transcends the boundaries of the tangible and the intangible, presenting a depth of perspective on the human experience through painting.


From the beginning, the artist's work exposes us to the cultural complexity that defines the human condition. Through its visual representation, the devastation caused by human conflict is revealed, where violence and injustice undermine the fundamental pillars of society. However, this exhibit also reflects the inherent human capacity for compassion and the search for peaceful solutions, even in the moments of greatest adversity.

Each work offers a confrontation with the darkness of the terrible and its apparent perpetuity. The artist immerses us in an ocean of pain and suffering, where a lack of empathy and injustice corrupt the very fabric of society, through this grim depiction.

The exhibition also addresses states of detachment, where the search for meaning becomes a constant longing in an increasingly fast-paced and challenging world. Here, the artist invites us to reflect on our connection to the living, emphasizing the importance of staying grounded in our deepest emotions and experiences amidst the hustle and bustle of modern life.


Protests and social demonstrations emerge as powerful landscapes of action, where creativity and visual expression become tools to denounce injustices and promote social change. Through these works, the artist urges us to raise our voices and fight for a more just and equitable world, where every individual has the opportunity to flourish and thrive.


Ultimately, the exhibition immerses us in the multiplicity of the human experience, challenging our pre-established perceptions and exploring new inner horizons. Through painting, the artist invites us to open our minds and hearts to the diversity and complexity of the world around us, reminding us that beauty and truth can be found in the most unexpected and surprising forms of life, reminding us of the importance of staying open to the complexity and beauty of the universe we share.
