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
