Francisco Diaz, aka Pastel, is debuting his first US solo show and titled Space-Landscape at Athen B Gallery in Oakland. The show centers around being a human in the world, and being surrounded by an environment created by men, where all of the elements of modern nature are social actors that constitute the new landscape. The work for Space-Landscape is almost a retrospective of the numerous Pastel murals out there in the world.
Experiences and narratives of various communities from as far as Australia to as close as San Leandro come to light, together, for the first time. The exhibition will include a diverse array of sizes, mediums, colors and plants displayed as paintings and sculptures.
