ARTIST - Diego Vinicio Espinosa Aguirre (1970 - )
Studied Fine Art at Universidad Técnica Particular de Loja (UTPL).
We'll call Diego an "exterior artist" since most all of his works are located outdoors. He creates monuments, murals, busts and stained glass windows using a variety of materials that include copper, bronze, aluminum, fiberglass, ferro cement, cast cement and, of course, glass. Originally a painter and muralist, he began sculpting in earnest in 1995. His accessible style has garnered a plethora of public and private commissions in Loja and throughout the country. It is impossible to tour Ecuador without seeing his work.
Artist's statement: "Art is a tool in the hands of man that serves to enhance the beauty of the human spirit, creating with the imagination an infinity of paths for the delight of the senses."
