About The Artist
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.
He began in the early 1980s and became recognized for his original, iconic pop culture pieces that included Monopoly, board games, pin-ups, Chanel, nostalgia and pop references to living the good life. He took pop art far beyond where its roots began..and made it all his own.

His art has been featured on countless television shows. He was the official 70th Anniversary artist for the Warner Bros. 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.
