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

As one of the world’s top pop artists today, Nelson De La Nuez is a born iconoclast, whose unique juxtaposition of pop and surrealism of America’s rich culture and history withstand the test of time. 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, trademark 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 well known celebrities, directors, producers, comedians, corporations and art connoisseurs.  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,
David Tutera’s, ” My Fair Wedding,” HGTV’s “Extreme Homes,” and “TMZ: Michael Jackson’s Final Art Purchase.”  Several pieces of his artwork were the last to enter into the prestigious collection of Michael Jackson before his untimely death.

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.
