About R.A. Diaz: My name is Rafael Angel Diaz and I am from Aguas Buenas, Puerto Rico. I live and work in Tucson, Arizona and I am constantly traveling to my picturesque barrio Sumidero in Aguas Buenas to inject a dose of my culture and my people in my veins. I grew up in a small town in the mountains of La Cordillera Central where I came in contact with a way of life that involves community, friendship and love and appreciation of nature. We don't have too much but we have each other and we have the beauty of our spirits and the soul of Puerto Rico. Art is my life. I paint from my soul, what I feel, what I see. My only goal is to try to make the world better by sharing my images with other humans that are sharing their world with me.
