Hello and welcome back to the F24podcast my name is David and as often as possible I sit down with a creative at my studio in North Acton to talk about their lives and interactions with where they are from, culture and creativity.
But like most of you, I’m in lockdown on my narrow boat on the canal, I’m just west of the city limits and I’ve set up a little studio space outside under a tree next to my woodpile producing small paintings and sculptures.
The effect of this worldwide lockdown is having quite an effect on me, but as any listeners will know what I love about creativity and its therapeutic assets.. I’ve been putting them to use and I hope you have too and are all well and bearing up with this madness, we’ll have it figured soon.
In the meantime, I’ve been on skype chatting to creatives and getting these interviews done and this week I have Diego Bergia. Diego is from Toronto and his work caught my eye a couple years ago when I saw a 90’s style videogame online with Revok, Giant and Ces doing tags and extinguisher hits whilst shooting robots.. it blew my mind.. I did a little stalking and found out he wrote graffiti and thought, that’s my ish..
As I ain't seeing people face to face I thought I’d holla Diego and get some history this and I’m glad I did because there was a dope surprise halfway through when we got onto a wheat paste period he was in.. check him @diego_bergia on Instagram whilst you listen. Enjoy, this is some of Diego’s Toronto, culture and creativity story.. enjoy this is f24.
