Nelson De La Nuez

Born in: 1959


Nelson De La Nuez (born in 1959 in Havana, Cuba) is an American Contemporary Pop Artist and visual satirist. He came to the US at age seven and was raised in Glendale, CA. He studied art history and in 1982 began exploring the art of collage by 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. He is known for developing his unique, trademarked style called, "Art on the Edge," which is creating artwork on all four sides of the canvas. 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. De La Nuez is known as the "King of Pop Art" ® for his original style of combining pop art and surrealism.
