Diane Gamboa has been producing, exhibiting, and curating visual art in Los Angeles for more than 20 years. From 1980 to 1984, she photographically documented the punk rock scene in East Los Angeles. Between 1980 and 1987, she was a member of ASCO, a conceptual multi-media performance art group. During this time she also organized numerous site-specific “Hit and Run” paper fashion shows. Created as easily disposable streetwear, Gamboa’s paper fashions became quite popular, and some were even exhibited in museums. In the 1990s, Gamboa began the Pin Up series of ink drawings on vellum, an in-depth study of male-female relationships. These works have in turn inspired her most recent Endangered Species series, which recreates some of the Pin Up drawings in a three-dimensional form. Many of the figures in the Pin Up drawings are covered in tattoos; Gamboa is currently learning the art of tattooing and exploring the use of other media including glass (stained glass windows), metal and concrete.

Diane Gamboa is a fine artist whose work has been exhibited extensively for decades. The major mediums in which she works are painting, ink drawing, photography, printmaking and paper fashion sculpture. Diane has also worked on numerous installations and as a visual stylist in collaboration with others. In the early 1980s she used black and white photography to document the Bad Influence series featuring punk bands from East L.A. and other bands of the time. Between 1980 and 1987, Gamboa was member, consultant, stylist, and referee in the ASCO collective, a multi-media performance art group. Over the years she has created numerous site-specific Hit and Run paper fashion live presentations. The concept was to juxtapose highly distinctive disposable paper sculpture on non-traditional models. The urban landscape served as the perfect environment for the Hit and Run presentations which would run generally from 5 to 30 minutes but would sometimes go on for hours as an instant street party. In 1997, Gamboa started the Pin Up series made up of 366 ink drawings of males on vellum. The series is an in-depth study of interpersonal relationships between women and men. The Pin Up and Pin Down images take place in interior settings with a strong personal touch of pattern and design. The Pin Up works led to the Endangered Species series that recreates the Pin Up drawing in three-dimensional form. These works entail ink tattoos on flesh but also works on glass, metal, and concrete. The cultural diversity in the city of Los Angeles continues to inspire and incite her artistic curiosity.

Gamboa’s depictions of both actual places and fictive spaces have draw increasing scholarly and critical attention, most recently in Karen Mary Davalos’s chapter on Gamboa and her art in the 2012 book Performing the US Latina And Latino Borderlands. Gamboa was named Distinguished Alumna of Otis College of Art and Design her work was selected for the Coagula Curatorial in 2013. In addition to the Regent’s Lecture on October 16, Gamboa will be visiting classes, meeting with students and faculty members, and participating in panel discussions.

O origami foi uma opção assumida em 1999 quando, então ainda aluna de artes plásticas, foi convidada para fazer um desfile na Calle del Sol, em Bogotá, e escolheu a técnica de dobragem de papel para marcar a diferença. Desde então, a artista colombiana tornou-se uma referência incontornável no domínio da técnica japonesa, que o seu pai incentivou a recriar – desde o simples objeto de adereço até ao sofisticado vestido de alta costura –, utilizando cartolina, papel metalizado, opalina, papel de algodão e outros materiais, por vezes reciclados. “O meu pai, que é um dos melhores artistas de origami do mundo, contou-me que um dia eu disse ‘quero aprender’ e sentou-me nas suas pernas para me mostrar tudo o que sabia. Disse-me que às vezes eu comia o papel. “Eu não estou interessada em fazer prêt à porter, o meu interesse é fazer arte e os vestidos que criei estão no papel, com uma vida curta porque o seu uso é limitado, mas no corpo feminino adquirem um valor próprio como expressão de moda.” (Diana Gamboa)
