Following the success of his Beverly Hills gallery’s sold-out show of his artwork at the prestigious Art Hamptons Fair, the International pop artist Nelson De La Nuez is now concentrating on the upcoming infamous Miami Beach Art Basel. Evan Lurie Gallery is selling his work at SCOPE at Booth E29 December 3-8, 2013. SCOPE is the largest and most global art fair in the world. Renowned for its uncanny ability to forecast new visual trends that are embraced globally, SCOPE Art shows in Miami, Basel, New York, London and the Hamptons have garnered extensive critical acclaim, with sales of over $500 million and of over 700,000 visitors.
The artist is also featured in the luxurious high-end magazine Private Air Luxury Homes for Nov/December. The article tells the humble beginnings of De La Nuez with a look into his creative mind and quirkiness on his rise to fame. The magazine is given out to private charter jets/lounges and at high-end VIP events, such as Art Miami opening gala for which they are a sponsor. His original works, often created on wood panels and large one-of-a-kind hand-painted pieces on canvas have very recently sold for prices that have increased the value of all of his art. “My originals sell faster than I can paint now. My galleries all want them for the high-end art fairs or to sell directly to specific clients and I have collectors who only want originals as investments, but, the minute I have one, it’s sold,” explains the artist. “It’s tough to keep up with painting at times, but there are worse problems to have.”
De La Nuez’s pop art is sold in galleries and auctions worldwide and he’s listed on the “Who’s Who List of the Most Collected Artists of Our Time.” He is also the owner of the Museum of Humor Art at theMoHA.com He created Nelson De La Nuez King of Pop Art branded items that consist of his own collection of purses, shoes, wallets and more for Icon leather, De La Nuez Heys designer pop art luggage collections that sold out at Neiman Marcus and Lord and Taylor, limited edition tailored shirts, wallpaper collections for the hospitality industry and luxury homes and more. His “It’s a Glamorous Life!” boxed greeting card set is launching next week. All branded items are sold on his luxury brands site, NelsonDeLaNuez.com
The artist’s designer shoe paintings, “Material Girl” and “Shoe Fetish,” can recently be seen hanging in Neiman Marcus shoe salon in Los Angeles. He made a special appearance/autograph signing and had an enormous turnout of fans and paparazzi.
When young Kardashian daughter, Kendall Jenner, Instagrammed his painting from the store, it blew up Instagram to almost 400,000 likes on the art. Videos can be seen via You Tube.
