In my artwork, "Wine First", I utilized tongue-in-cheek text to capture the essence of wine as an integral part of socialization and cultural identity. Wine fosters connections and sparks conversations. Once wine is poured, laughter often flows almost as easily as the wine. Drinking wine was an ancient ritual at one time and has not slowed down in popularity but has become a permanent ritual for many who live by the rule, "Wine first."
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.
