CONTEMPORARY INTERNATIONAL ARTIST & DESIGNER, POP LAND STUDIOS
With prestigious art galleries located in luxury destinations, ranging from Palm Beach, Pacific Palisades, Hamptons to Aspen, Soho, Hong Kong, DC, Boston and major cities in between and a lengthy celebrity list of collectors, pop artist Nelson De La Nuez is kept busy nonstop, often with a wait list.
His sophisticated, yet playful, original mixed media pop artwork is always in demand with the A list, whether it be the billionaire hedge fund crowd or the music and entertainment industry executives and celebrities or the savvy art collector with the keen eye looking to round out an extensive art collection. They appreciate his unique, fun style fitting for luxury homes.
His many luxury brand collections of home decor, travel and fashion over the years have all been branded with his trademark namesake of The King of Pop Art®, after being titled that years ago via media and press; it stuck for his brand.
He has partnered with and been hired for commissions and designs for companies, such as Delta Airlines; you will see many of his pieces in the Delta One & Sky Club lounges around the country, AZUL airlines, Shoedazzle, Hermes, Corum watches, and for countless celebrity and industry executive requests.
De La Nuez has built an empire that sells his art in various formats and price points; online via his site, but also sells extensively to chosen galleries worldwide, interior designers and developers, the hospitality industry for hotels, nightclubs, restaurant decor/design.
“Part of my success is because I realized the need for art at all prices..There is something for everyone.. every stage of collecting my work,” he explains.
"People don't buy products. They want relationships, stories and magic. That's where I come in. We all need a little magic.
