b. Buenos Aires, Argentina 1969 - lives and works in Buenos Aires
Gustavo Fabian Díaz was born in Buenos Aires in August of 1969. He studied at the National Technical School Otto Krause where his great interest in science was sparked. At 18 he was awarded a scholarship to study at the INTI National Institute of Industrial Technology to do research, and where he had access to a more hands on approach to science. It was then that he decided to dedicate himself fully to art. He graduated from the Prilidiano Puerrydon School of Fine Arts while studying music at the Manuel de Falla Institute. This interdisciplinary education led him to explore art-making from a scientific angle, proposing a bridge between art and modern scientific theories.
Some of his most engaging drawings are based on René Thom’s Catastrophe Theories and on Ilya Prigogine’s theories of Chaos and the behavior of hyper-complex systems, such as matrixes and other non-Euclidian geometry theorems. In 2002 he co-founded NOUS, a Center for Art and Design whose objective is interdisciplinary scientific research.
