Yelitza Diaz
Mauldin, South Carolina

Born in Venezuela, Yelitza Diaz’s life has been wrapped in the arts since childhood. She founded a gallery with her husband, who is also an artist, and was successful for many years until the crime and corruption in the local government became unbearable. They now live in South Carolina, where she makes art that explores human existentialism and the political and social developments of her native country. Her sculptures are made with ceramic techniques using a minimalist contemporary style. Fun fact: Yelitza designed the town seal for her native Municipio Falcón in Venezuela.

Comments About This Piece

I try to convey the effort it takes the modern man to move up and out of the circumstances that make up his being and existence. This piece is a ceramic sculpture that has been finished in a way to look like bronze. Each Small Being is individually hand-modeled with clay at a high temperature and then painted in bronze. It is then placed on a solid wood, which has been painted white. This piece comes ready to hang.


Sculpture refers to visual art objects that are 3-dimensional. Sculpture can be made with a wide range of materials, such as clay, wood, bronze, or found objects. The medium can also be constructed and assembled in a variety of ways, such as, molding, welding and carving.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
