This or That – Diamante Beghetto

Diamante Beghetto | Collater.al

Graphic designer, illustrator but also creative director, Diamante Beghetto is a well-rounded artist, able to range widely between styles and techniques thanks to innate talent. Drawing, creating, sculpting, embroidering, painting… for her, the artistic act is therapeutic, it purges the spirit, rearranges thoughts and chaos. 
In terms of subjects, the universe of the 1986-born artist is a jungle of elegant women with often shy and shy appearances, animals and monsters of all shapes and forms. Her poetics investigates the unconscious, brings up nightmares and dreams by turning them into strokes, color, matter. In the project Pasto Nudo Diamond explores the boundaries between the SE and the other, the YOU, illustration is transformed by becoming edible, possible and tangible act of sharing.

How difficult is it to untie oneself from one’s own experience, made up of ingrained views and ways, to try to see the other with clear, neutral eyes without distorting his or her identity? Is it ME who draws your YOU? Or is it YOU who can draw yourself through me?” In the artist’s words, the goal of the project emerges clearly and powerfully, a table that becomes a territory of sharing, a convivial moment transformed into a session of analysis, different points of view shaping a projection or a possible shared and sharable truth.
