This piece is something that I hoped many people would relate to and be laughing at themselves… not the exact situation necessarily, but in life in general. Everyone aspires to better themselves and reach a level of success so once they have reached that level they hope to achieve or tasted a certain amount of luxury, it is very difficult to go backwards in life.
As the saying goes, “Only look back in life to see how far you’ve come.” I wanted this to be a positive, yet humorous spin on achieving first class status.
Nelson De La Nuez is one of the most sought-after contemporary Pop artists practicing today. His striking, vivid mixed media artwork borrows motifs and messages from the language of wealth, power, fame, excess, taste, and access to cast a fun, yet sophisticated narrative about modern society.
Known as The King of Pop Art®, De La Nuez is an innate iconoclast, providing commentary on our culture. He does so in a manner that is both ironic and aspirational. The artist's work is sold in prestigious galleries worldwide and in many important private and corporate collections.

Gorgeous! I loved putting it together and will love it even more framed and hung up!
I found puzzling to bring on a very meditative experience and I liked it. The was challenging and exciting, because endorphins are created when a piece finds its place. The artwork is beautiful.
