about Diego Pujal
Buenos Aires (Argentina), 1971
Diego Pujal is an Argentinian artist living in Barcelona whose painting explores the codes of pictorial language and confronts us with the enigma of shaping meaning. From some vague position or a certain representative limb we are presented with a territory freed from imposed definitions, something in a state of inertia and that seduces us from its enigmatic aspect. It is this seduction that opens the door to intervene in what we are observing and invites us to mobilize those internal mechanisms that make up our capacity to configure symbologies, to interweave relationships and to give life to a specific referent.
