Nelson De La Nuez: The King of Pop Art® : Biography

Nelson De La Nuez: The King of Pop Art® : Biography

As one of the world’s most collected, significant pop artists today, Nelson De La Nuez is a born iconoclast. Using his unique juxtaposition of pop culture and surrealism, blended with America’s rich culture and history,  De La Nuez has created works of art that are considered timeless. Listed on the “Who’s Who List of the Most Collected Artists of Our Time,” his works are original, bold and outspoken.  The artist is known for his distinctive, trademarked style called “Art on the Edge,” which is creating art on all sides of the canvas and wood.

De La Nuez’s artwork is hanging in some of the most prominent, private collections of movie stars, directors, producers, comedians, corporations and art connoisseurs, as well as purchased recently for future auctions by Sotheby’s.  His art has been featured on countless television shows, including, to name a few:  VH1: Fabulous Life of: “The Latest in Billionaire Home Décor,” “Inside Edition,” MTV “Cribs,” HGTV “Designer’s Challenge,” E! “Celebrity Favorites,” “America’s Next Top Model” mansion interior design, HGTV’s “Extreme Homes,” countless Bravo tv shows and “TMZ: Michael Jackson’s Final Art Purchase.”

He was the official 70th Anniversary artist for the Wizard of Oz film and created original artwork for the celebration of the iconic movie, one of which, “Ditching Dorothy,” was forever immortalized on a limited edition sheet of US postage stamps.  His work sells out yearly at such prestigious shows as Art Hamptons, Art Southampton, Art Basel Miami, Art Aspen and worldwide at his galleries. The art values have increased significantly over the past few years.

The Nelson De La Nuez “King of Pop Art®” brands are composed of many collections that have merged art, fashion, home decor and design. A few collections include hard side luggage, leather purses, shoes, accessories, tailored shirts, sound panels for hospitality industry or home theatres, wallpaper and more. His art and branded collections are sold in galleries and stores internationally.
