ROBERTO DIAGO

1920-1955

Born Havana, Cuba

Died Madrid, Spain

Roberto Diago Querol was born in Havana in 1920.

In 1937 he attended the Estudio Libre de Escultura y Pintura; and between 1936 and1941 the Academia de San Alejandro; both in Havana, Cuba. He deeply explored the African component of his identity by studying and representing deities from the Afro Cuban pantheon. He also did designs for theatre.

Diago’s was a very short career since he died in 1955. Despite his untimed death, he left behind an important body of work which showed his maturity as an artist.
