Diago Leon is a Cuban-born visual artist that focuses on illustration, content creation and comic book/ graphic novel writing. He likes long walks on the beach and enjoys spending time with his roommates: hundreds of roaches who he communicates with telepathically. Having relocated to Miami at the age of four, Diago developed social anxiety that he was able to cope with through illustration and recreating spongebob fan art. He transitioned into Fine Arts in the 3rd grade and continued in art programs throughout high school, attending New World School of the Arts. Continuously dealing with his social anxiety in his senior year, Diago created compositions of life drawings from social events in relationship with the nature and scenery surrounding him. Using his art to completely focus on these specific events/situations rather than the lengthy existential political debates he used to partake in with his roachie comrades. After graduating from New World School of the Arts in 2018, Diago has garnered a niche following on social media (@Oh_Dingi) through his digital art. In an interview with Brut Magazine, Daria Pekh stated that Diago’s work contains “shifting perspectives, rendered with psychedelic grit.” She also wrote, “The work is engaging – it makes you look for detail – ants on wallpaper, the reflection of a full face in an eyeball, a peach slice.” Pekh clearly describes Diago’s obsessive fixation on details in his artwork.
