During a recent trip to Tucson, I fell in love with a magical place, full of textures, colors, history and a huge collection of art. DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun is a place that tells a story about the great artist Ted Degrazia. He was an Italian immigrant who arrived in Territorial Arizona and fell in love with the indigent culture deserts and nature.
In his life, Ted developed a great talent in art, painting, sculpture and much more. He was a native artist who never stopped creating. He was always making something. He was an unstoppable hard worker and it’s incredible how much a man can create with is own hands.
This article is dedicated to my passion for windows and doors. I have a great inclination for them, from anywhere, but obviously, DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun is a very special place.
Ted build this place with his own hands with local materials from nature. Every decoration, from one point to another in is his creation. Every single entrance and each window for was like going through another dimension.
I show in each of my photographs, a bit of those windows and doors that I loved so much. I also show some photos that represent the life of this great person.
Ted DeGrazia worked with great Mexican artists like Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco.
The art of Degrazia should be appreciated because of his sensibility and focus with Indians kids and women. He painted them and represented story with bright colors. Inside of his house, which is now part of the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun, Ted built a little church dedicated to the kids.
