Notable exhibitions

Since his first exhibitions, Canogar has left an indelible mark on the art world. In 2010, his exhibition ‘Dibujando esculturas’ at the Central Hall of Caja Rural de Granada and ‘Hierro, trazos y líneas’ in Cáceres and Plasencia, demonstrated his ability to transform iron into forms full of life and movement.

During 2014 and 2015, Diego continued to expand his reach with exhibitions at events such as the SUMMA ART Fair in Madrid and the International Exhibition of Plastic Arts of Valdepeñas in Ciudad Real. His participation in projects such as ‘Meninas’, where his sculptures adorned the streets of Madrid, reflected his commitment to making art accessible to the general public.

The year 2017 was particularly prolific, with exhibitions such as ‘Cosmología’ at Espacio Est Art in Alcobendas, and ‘El Arte del grabado y el Ferrocarril del siglo XIX al XXI’ at the Museo Casa de la Moneda in Madrid. These exhibitions not only showcased his technical skill but also his ability to integrate historical and contemporary elements into his works.

In 2018, Diego presented ‘Curvas, rectas y vacíos’ at Amaga Gallery in Avilés, Asturias, and ‘Transiciones’ at Bat Gallery, Alberto Cornejo in Madrid. That same year, his participation in the exhibition ‘Sculpture in the Garden’ together with Czili at La Clá, Moraleja Green, Alcobendas, offered a fresh and vibrant vision of how sculpture can interact with the natural environment.

The Art Madrid Fair has been a recurring highlight in Canogar’s career, most notably his presence in 2020 with the Bat Alberto Cornejo gallery. This event consolidated his position as a renowned sculptor both nationally and internationally.
