PALM SPRINGS, Calif., Feb. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bruce Lurie, owner of Lurie Gallery, will show brand new, exciting work from Nelson De La Nuez, the King of Pop Art at booth # 109 at the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, February 12-15, 2015 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. International pop artist Nelson De La Nuez is well known for his pop culture interpretations of such themes as Wall Street finance mixed with Monopoly icons, luxury fashion brands juxtaposed with vibrant pop colors and women yearning for designer shoes and first class travel. He doesn't shy away, however, from addressing current issues. Lurie Gallery will be showing De La Nuez's newest releases in Palm Springs. "Love Wins" bears resemblance to the iconic orange Chance game card with a modern day twist, stating, "Congratulations! Your State Approves Gay Marriage. Advance to Chapel." It is a 44"x26" hand painted, one of a kind, mixed media canvas. "The title 'Love Wins' says it all," explains the artist. "Religion should never play a role in who someone is allowed to love. If I can either provoke thought through my work or make people feel positive about the world, then I've done my job," he says. Another new release, "Graffiti is Not Art," shows the artist's own stance against graffiti and so called "street art" that has become prevalent in today's society.
Nelson De La Nuez can't paint fast enough to keep up the demand as quickly as his galleries are selling his large hand painted pieces. Bruce Lurie and his brothers, Craig and Scott Lurie, know this firsthand. "I sold almost all of the large De La Nuez pieces on the opening day of Miami Art Basel. It was insane. I had a lot of his original art and people wanted to be the first to get there for them...same thing at LA Art Show...his one of a kind pieces are so in demand," Lurie says. The artist has been creating original art using his creative mind to blend childhood games, Americana and luxury since the early 1980's. His style continues to evolve by constantly merging pop culture with relevant issues.
The Palm Springs Fine Art Fair turns the desert into a cultural mecca over this weekend, having attracted over 14,000 acquisition-oriented art lovers to the Fair during 2014. The results were stunning with millions of dollars in art sales recorded by the 60 exhibiting galleries. Lurie Gallery shows De La Nuez's work on a permanent basis at his Beverly Hills, CA gallery. The artist has an upcoming museum show at the Coral Springs Museum of Art in Coral Springs, Florida that will be on exhibit and for sale March 5-May 23, 2015.
He has very successful galleries worldwide that sell his work and many prestigious, branded licensing and partnership deals sold online and at stores such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Lord and Taylor. Many are sold out, but he says he has several new brands pending deals as he decides. Arrive to the Palm Springs Fine Art Show early before the King of Pop Art's work sells out to avoid disappointment.
Nelson 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. His art has been featured on countless television and luxury interior design shows/celebrity homes. De La Nuez's pop art is sold in galleries and auctions worldwide.
He's listed on the "Who's Who List of the Most Collected Artists of Our Time." His work sells out yearly at such prestigious shows as Art Hamptons, Art Southampton, Art Basel Miami, London Art Fair, Art Houston, Art Aspen and worldwide at his galleries. The art values have increased significantly in recent years.
