Douglas Diaz (b. 1972) is a Brooklyn, New-York born artist. His work explores questions of his own humanity, challenging preconceptions and thoughts, embracing fears and the darkness that lies deep within the unconscious in an attempt to gain spiritual equanimity. This exploration takes shape in the form of drawings and paintings that occur after a short zazen meditation.

The drawings themselves are cathartic exercises that often repeat in themes. Douglas has been exhibiting his work in solo and group shows since 2015 across Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, and the United States. In 2017, Douglas had his first solo museum exhibition titled SHUKKE (Art 1 Museum, Indonesia). His work is collected privately and publicly in 18 different countries.
