Daniel Diaz-Tai was born in Venezuela but raised somewhere between Cumana, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing and San Francisco, California. His multiple homes have strongly influenced his chosen career as a visual artist. While he began his career in the arts with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, he also earned a M.F.A in Painting from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco. His work developed from the need to find common ground between his journeys. By creating his own language through painting and calligraphy, he discovered a process that allows him to express himself. His studio is currently based at Arc Studios in San Francisco. Daniel Diaz-Tai's artwork has been shown throughout the United States, Venezuela and Asia.
