Diego Zangirolami

b 1984 Italy. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.


The painter and architect Diego Zangirolami graduated in architecture at the
Politecnico University of Turin after attending an artistic high school. His artistic research is strongly linked to the European painting tradition and is characterized by original miniatures where people, landscapes, architecture, history, literature, poetry, and myths speak to each other.

Highly skilled in drawing he possesses a refined pictorial technique. Precious miniatures enclose small worlds, linked to each other, where characters either real or imagined, live in extemporal contexts. The creative mind of the artist, anachronistic at a first glance, contains a different temporality that is developed in a totally personal regarding composition and content. After several years spent living in Chile, since 2016 he lives and works in Berlin.
