Campbellsville University student and artist Diego Cardenas came to speak to Jo Ann Harris's classes about his style of graffiti and mural art.

Cardenas, who is from Venezuela, said he began painting about four years ago when he came to the United States.


Writing graffiti, he said, is risky and he has been caught before.

In Venezuela, he said, he often wrote graffiti tags and continued his art when coming to CU. He now mostly paints murals, and Cardenas said that's the direction he wants his art career to take him.

Cardenas recently completed a large mural of a tiger on the CU campus.

He spoke to students about the techniques he uses to create his murals, along with the supplies he uses and those who have inspired him.

Cardenas posts photos of his work on Instagram, and can be followed by searching lediegue_arte.

CHS art students recently created their own graffiti-style art pieces, depicting something they would be willing to give up their freedom to keep.
