Diego Asperges was born in Milan in april 22, 1958. His family has always been related to art. His great-grandfather, Guglielmo Da Re, was a renowned painter and his father, Italo, was a miniaturist sculptor.
Diego studied at Brera Art Academy and he started working in 1985 joining his father’s art laboratory. He focused on malleable materials in order to produce bronze and silver objects. He created prototypes for famous companies, artists and international fashion brands.
He owned a detailed academic drawing know-how combined with a remarkable creativity. He became an eminent miniaturist sculptor. He focuses on resin sculpting. He creates his own art since 2010, when D.A.Arte by Diego Asperges was established as an association to pass down Diego’s Art.
Diego’s artworks, shown through “Free Expression” Exhibition at SAC, depict the stylistic evolution of the artist that goes from the representation of a human being typified by android features to the depiction of current events like immigration, ecology, politics and virtual reality. A consideration that extends from the individual to the whole humanity.
Natural and artificial landscapes are the setting of a not-edifying human intervention. Every good is produced, exhausted and rejected in order to satisfy a temporary pleasure, the natural rhythm is substituted by a chaotic anxiety that unsuccessfully tries to influence the unchangeable time flow.
