About Artist

As one of the world's most collected, significant pop artists today, Nelson De La Nuez is a born iconoclast known as the King of Pop Art, with a great American story, having come from Cuba at age 7 with nothing but talent. 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 now considered timeless. 

He became recognizable for his style in the early 1980's for his original use of iconic games such as Monopoly with newspaper backgrounds as well as luxury items utilizing fun, pop bubbles to emphasize in a tongue in cheek manner the luxury lifestyle. He created and set the trend for this style long before any others that were to follow. 
De La Nuez took pop art far beyond where its roots began and made it all his own.
