Euforia is coming to San Miguel

Rolando Diaz, an internationally known artist, will be creating original oil-on-canvas accompanied by pianist/ composer Seth Simmons.

Dallas-based Cuban-American artist Rolando Diaz believes art is the expression of life. Everything we see, feel, touch, smell, and hear, in one way or another, becomes part of the images expressed on the canvas. It is this thought that is the basis for the work of this fine artist.

His travels through Switzerland, France, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Honduras, England, Canada, Guatemala, Africa, Brazil, Mexico, and many other places have brought him back to the original European influences in Havana.

Diaz has exhibited nationally and internationally and has collectors in both areas. Some who enjoy Diaz’s work include Liza Minnelli, Rob Thomas, BJ and Gloria Thomas, and many others. The artist has also painted live with great musicians such as Seth Simmons, Jewel, Manhattan Transfer, George Winston, David Monei[P1] t, BJ Thomas, and the Dallas Wind Symphony, to name a few. Following a PBS special that aired in the US, Canada, and Russia, Diaz received additional international attention.

Diaz believes his gifts are from God and continues to use them to bring excitement to the eyes of the viewer and relate sometimes hidden messages about life.

Pianist/composer Seth Simmons believes he is only a conduit of what he has been entrusted with … whatever flows out of that … is in the hands of the one who allowed him to have this gift.

Growing up the son of a speech and drama teacher, Seth was heavily influenced by his mother’s love for the arts. At the age of seven, Seth began his musical training on the piano. He says he has been fortunate to live in many places that others only dream of, from the Philippines to Texas, Alaska to Florida, and parts in between. This has allowed him to learn to improvise on the go.

Seth has performed publicly in Puerto Rico, Florida, California, New York, and most recently Dallas, Texas, where he currently stars in “Euforia.” Seth’s instrumental work is described by some as “new age and romantic,” and by others as “neo/classical with a touch of pop.” Seth’s unique sound will lift your heart and touch your soul. If there is anything Seth stresses, it is to follow your dreams and passions. Whether you want to be a ditch digger, an astronaut, a princess,” or a president … pursue that burning desire and vision you have. For now is all you have and tomorrow is a word that is not guaranteed.

Let your imagination cross over into a surreal space of creation as the two art forms collide live in “Euforia.”
