Who is Isaac Díaz Pardo?

Isaac Díaz Pardo was a Galician intellectual strongly attached to both Sargadelos and Cerámica do Castro. He was an intellectual galicianist, painter, ceramist, designer, editor and businessman.

He was born in Santiago de Compostela and died in A Coruña.

In 2009, he received the Medalla de Oro al Mérito en las Bellas Artes of Spain.

Isaac Díaz Pardo was the son of the painter and scenographer Camilo Díaz Baliño. Several reunions related to the League of Friends of the Galician Language took place in their house as Díaz Baliño was an active member. Other members who took part in these meetings include Castelao, Vicente Risco, Otero Pedrayo, Ramón Cabanillas, Antón Villar Ponte, Eduardo Blanco Amor and Asorey.

Sr. Díaz Pardo's father was shot by rebels soon after the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, forcing him into hiding in La Coruña where he stayed with his uncle Indalecio and found work as a letterer. After the war he received a bursary from the Provincial Government of La Coruña, thanks to which he was able to study at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid, between 1939 and 1942.

He went on to take a professorship at The Catalan Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Saint George in Barcelona, and began to exhibit in Spain and abroad. He then left the plastic arts for ceramics, founding the Cerámicas do Castro factory with several partners. At this point he experimented with the raw materials used in original 19th Century works by Antonio Raimundo Ibáñez Llano y Valdés. This resulted in ceramics of high quality.
