To step inside the mind of Don Diablo is to step inside the future. The Dutch visionary demonstrates a total immersion in his craft that has seen him challenge perceptions and break down creative boundaries with his numerous endeavours across the music, art, fashion and tech realms. Displaying a unique ability to tap into future trends, the forward-thinking Futurist refuses to be pigeonholed by just one avenue of his illustrious career. In 2021 alone he has been working on ambitious new projects alongside Star Wars & Disney, The United Nations and auction house Sotheby’s, who auctioned off his fygital NFT piece “INFINITΞ FUTURΞ” after breaking the primary sales record on digital art platform SuperRare with his previous piece DΞSTINATION HΞXAGONIA. His second Sotheby’s collaboration is currently on display at the Moco Museum in Amsterdam amongst the works of other contemporary artists such as Banksy, Kusama and Andy Warhol. More recently Diablo’s collaborations with DRIFT debuted to great critical acclaim at The Biennale in Venice, Art Basel Miami and Art Dubai in conjunction with PACE gallery.
Not just pioneering within the world of (digital) art, fashion and charity the Dutchman, currently lucky #7 in the prestigious DJMAG top 100 list, is still at the top of the game in the field of (electronic) music, selling out highly anticipated solo shows across the globe. His most recent FOREVER album (2021) already amassed over 500 million streams and in the meanwhile he has added artists like Coldplay, Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa and many other big names to his remix portfolio over the past years. In conjunction with non profit organization Just Diggit and the United Nations he is currently championing a new global charity initiative called “Stream To Regreen”, using the power of music to help regreen our planet. In his role as a brand ambassador for Disney’s Star Wars Diablo has produced several exclusive fashion items and is currently working on the next collection. With a staple of forward thinking new projects planned for 2022 and beyond…the best is yet to come.
New works are currently in development in alliance with partners such as K11 in Asia as well as the heirs of Salvador Dali.
