Duddley Diaz

Philippines

Dudley Diaz born 1962 Philippines.Graduated with B.F.A at University of Philppines, Manila in 1983 and lives in Florence, Italy since 1998.All Dudley Diaz’s sculptures of Horse, Boar, Tiger show chisel marks, the rawness is even exaggerated by his random brush strokes applied on his sculptures. He left some of the wood surfaces untreated a concept that is spontaneous, much like Chinese brush paintings.The ‘Preacher’ is of a woman bearing a child and this is a message for Dudley about the messenger of God.
