RETIRED plasterer Antoine Diaz is building a reputation as a talented artist among his peers at Mundaring Men’s Shed.

The 84-year-old resident, of Glen Forrest, recently built a rustic seat for four with fellow member Phil Carter.

Mr Diaz decorated the seat with leftover tiles, which he painted with dancing couples circa the 1800s.

Mundaring Men’s Shed spokesman Allan Pope said his workmanship was impressive.

“Antoine really is an amazing painter; we’re lucky to have him,” he said.

Mr Diaz said he went along to the Shed twice a week to enjoy some company and share a joke with his friends.
