About the Artist
Zachary Antonio Diaz (b. 1991) is an international visual artist and graphic designer. His current work explores the multitude of ways in which humans can connect. Using personal reflections of his own, teamed with anonymous reflective letters from the public, his narrative drawings and paintings seek to challenge the viewer's perception of themselves, their surroundings, and each other.
Zachary received his BFA from the University of South Carolina in 2018. He has attended residencies at The New York Academy of Art in SOHO, NY, the International Center for the Arts in Umbria, Italy, and the 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia, SC. He has exhibited his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions such as "Letters" at Stormwater Studios in Columbia, SC, "Homecoming" at Sumter, SC's Patriot Hall, the Summer Residency Showcase at the New York Academy of Art, and many more. Diaz is currently an MFA student at Towson University in Maryland and is building upon his exploration of human connection while creating narrative scenes within his work.
