Sol Diaz

Houston, TX

Sol Diaz utilizes oil paint, canvas and the centering of queer bodies and people of color to craft a naturalist and animist vision of growth in marginal spaces. Diaz, a Houston native, works from within a Cuban and Mexican heritage, a trans identity, and a focus that counters misogyny, anti-blackness, patriarchy and all tangential chords of white supremacy. The peace and safety in the spaces Sol Diaz creates on Canvas bleed into the real, and speak to us with the tempered grace of the vulnerable who have found protection. Sol Diaz was a resident artist for Project Row Houses 2018 Summer Studios Residency in Houston, Texas. Their work as a whole stands on it’s own as a quiet, spiritual, and radical act
