We had the good fortune of connecting with Diego Tario and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Diego, what is the most important factor behind your success?
One of the few things that set me apart or put me in situations to win are the hours of practice i put in behind my craft. I love challenges so i take on more than i can chew on purpose sometimes.

Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. 
I would say my work stands out by technique. I like to fool the eye with alot of details but still keep a traditional handpainted look. Ive been painting since 2015 and had to pick up ton of knowledge to level up my work. I like to take advantage of multiple mediums. What might not look pleasing in one form can be total beauty in another.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If thers no artshows that week we’re probably eating at Glorias because latin food needs no explanation. Next go check out whats on display at the modern museum of art in Fort Worth. Drinks are done locally in my book. Local dive bars because less people and less drivng. who likes to wait for drinks at a high priced bar anyways.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would have to say shout out to my wife and kids for helping me in multiple ways on this journey whether its through support helping or putting up with my crazy work hours. Also shout out my friends who have become collectors or shown support.
