Nelson De La Nuez was born in Havana, Cuba in 1959, and came to the US at age seven and was raised in Glendale, CA. He studied art history and in 1982 began exploring various media used together in his work, while juxtaposing the masters of art such as Vincent van Gogh or Pablo Picasso and juxtaposing the images with popular culture and satirical humor. This is when he created what became known as Art Juxtaposed. He is the creator and owner of the Museum of Humor Art (the MOHA) which sells all of the artist's humor, parody genre works of art. His style evolved into pop culture merged with surreal worlds, old time advertising, board games and nostalgia to create his original pop art with the "Art on the Edge." This style spoke to the baby boomers and everyone who remembered their childhood toys, music, films, politics and icons fondly. 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. 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 for auctions by Sotheby's. 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. His work sells out consistently at such prestigious shows as Art Basel Miami, Art Hamptons, Art Southampton, Art Aspen, Art Singapore, Art Houston and worldwide at galleries. The art values continue to increase every year according to demand, for which the artist can barely keep up.
