Diego Giacometti was born in Borgonovo, a Swiss village near the Italian border. Son of the painter Giovanni Giacometti, he grew up in a warm, convivial familial atmosphere amidst the animals of their farm. In 1904, the family settled in nearby Stampa in the canton of Grisons.
After business studies in Basel and Saint-Gall, at age 25 he followed the advice of his mother Annetta and went to Paris to rejoin his brother Alberto, then a student of the sculptor Antoine Bourdelle at the Academy of the Grande Chaumière. All three of the Giacometti brothers went into the visual arts: Alberto and Diego into painting and sculpture, and Bruno into architecture. wikipedia

Very skilful craftsmen, with years and years of practice, are able to elaborate china (and believe me it is not easy at all) then some idiot believing he has some talent, come up, wreck them down and it becomes art!

This man has found something!
While his art is impressively strong and, somehow, reminding of Francis Bacon, the "painting in volume" literally brings a new dimension to reading a picture in depth.
Certainly not his purpose or intention but I foresee there some strong hint, some new hypothese and anyway a strong food for thoughts about 3D perception.
