About Aziz Diagne

..About The Artis


Aziz Diagne is a multi-media artist .These art forms include water color, oil painting , printmaking, ceramic , sculpture, murals,

tapestry, Set-building for the production and reverse painting on glass. Aziz, a self-taught artist, through his unique and dynamic

talents, quickly established himself as one of the premiere contemporary glass painters. Aziz traveled extensively the United States

and the world, absorbing the art and cultures of diverse environments. These experiences have greatly enhanced the artistís

seemingly limitless repertoire and creative energy.

About The Work
Theissoise,reversed painting on glass,is a process that involves applying color to the glass in the exact reverse process involved

when painting on any other surface.The process is a detailed and a painstaking method as each color is applied separately. and

various other tools are used to give continuity, contrast and texture to the finished work. Rich in symbolism, the artistís work

captures the spirit and ambiance of the universal experience.

Other Mediums
Colorgraph is a unique art in and of itself. The artist has designed and developed a printing press that enables him to produce

original colorgraph print with multi-colors in a single run. The illustration is carved from various materials with an illustration board.

Due to the process of extreme pressure being applied in the making of the print, the plate has very limited use. Each colorgraph is

an original.
