About Diane Mastel
Diane Mastel is an award-winning fine artist with an eclectic flair. She “starred” in Hollywood, working with the great art directors of the day to create original poster art for the movie industry, for such hits as “The Natural,” “Supergirl,” “Sid and Nancy,” “Revolution” and the “Clan of the Cave Bear,” to name but a few.
• Diane took home the Hollywood Reporter 16th annual “Key Art Award” First Place award for best movie poster “Sid & Nancy” starring Gary Oldman, as well as International Advertising Festival of New York best poster “Sid and Nancy.”
• While working on movie posters and ads for CBS, NBC, Disney and MGM, Diane produced original oil paintings for movie and TV sets.
Her clients were captivated with her work, and sought her out to create original art for their own private residences. Diane’s inspiration came from Salvador Dali, Leonardo DaVinci and Peter Paul Rubens for their use of imagination and technical expertise.
“They did a lot of custom art for their clients and that’s always intrigued me, because you have to make something beautiful within certain parameters.”
Her poster muse was the great Hollywood illustrator Howard Carriker. Diane now lives in Reno and creates custom oil, murals and watercolor paintings for clients around the U.S.
Diane also does high end custom pet portraiture. Please go to her website at Pet Portraits By Diane Mastel to find out more.
