As both architect, artist and researcher, his work spins around the studio practice and into the making, with regards to reconstruction, repetition and re-interpretation of a pre modern culture in regression. Diego Delas looks at certain vernacular architectural motifs — those related to storytelling and magical thinking — functioning as or embodying notions of a certain modernist drive, that of optimism and renovation that make the house be regarded as a familiar body sustained by memories, repetitions and populated with spells and amulets. Through the use of site-specific installation, his works revolves around issues such as subjective memory and the use of architecture and ornamental programs for storytelling.

Delas studied Architecture and Fine Arts in Madrid before moving to London to obtain a MA Painting at the Royal College of Art and a PhD at the Ruskin College of Art, University of Oxford while being honored to be beneficiary of prestigious grants and prizes such as the AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, University of Oxford (2016-2019). He was also shortlisted by Cervezas Alhambra Emergent Art Award (2019), Paulo Cunha e Silva Prize (2017), Generación 2017 Award by Fundación Montemadrid, Madrid, Spain (2016); was selected T for an artistic residence in Feria BARCU, Bogotá, Colombia (2015); he also was granted with a Lucy Halford Bursary, a Windfall Bursary and a RCA (HEFCE) Student Bursary for Royal College of Art, London (2013-2014); was awarded with a special mention at Lafarge/COAM, Toledo, Spain (2013); won Transitarte prize, Culture dept. Government of Spain (2013) and obtained an honorific mention at OPERALAB/BMW, Opera Nardonova, Warsaw, Poland (2013).
