Nelson De La Nuez
Take the Money and Run



Take the Money and Run 65.5” x 48” Mixed Media One of a Kind Ready to hang, Unframed A large scale format of Nelson’s rendition of the monopoly man as on the run and loaded. NELSON DE LA NUEZ As one of the world's most collected, significant pop artists today, Nelson De La Nuez is a born iconoclast. Using his unique juxtaposition of pop culture and surrealism, blended with America’s rich culture and history, De La Nuez has created works of art that are considered timeless. He began in the early 1980's and became recognized for his original, iconic pop culture pieces that included Monopoly, board games, pin ups, Chanel, nostalgia and pop references to living the good life. He took pop art far beyond where its roots began and made it all his own. Listed on the “Who’s Who List of the Most Collected Artists of Our Time,” his works are original, bold and outspoken. The artist is known for his distinctive, trademarked style called “Art on the Edge,” which is creating art on all sides of the canvas and wood. 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, as well as purchased for auctions by Sotheby's. His art has been featured on countless television shows, including, to name a few: "The Fabulous Life of," “The Latest in Billionaire Home Décor,” “Inside Edition,” MTV “Cribs,” HGTV “Designer’s Challenge,” E! “Celebrity Favorites," “TMZ: Michael Jackson’s Final Art Purchase,” "America's Next Top Model" mansion interior design, HGTV's "Extreme Homes," "Rich Kids of Instagram," and a very wide variety of many Bravo TV shows and more... He was the official 70th Anniversary artist for the Warner Bros. Wizard of Oz film and created original artwork for the celebration of the iconic movie, one of which, “Ditching Dorothy,” was forever immortalized on a limited edition sheet of US postage stamps. His work sells out consistently at such prestigious shows as Art Basel Miami, Art Hamptons, Art Southampton, Art Aspen, Art Singapore, Art Houston and worldwide at his galleries. The art values continue to increase every year according to demand, for which the artist can barely keep up. He works closely with very specific charity partners close to his heart (especially animal causes) and has raised significant amounts of money for them with auctions, as well as lending his appearance walking red carpets each year at the events. The Nelson De La Nuez "King of Pop Art" brands are composed of many collections that have merged art, fashion, home decor and design. A few collections include hard side luggage, leather purses, shoes, accessories, tailored shirts, sound panels for hospitality industry or home theaters, designer wallpaper and more. His art and branded collections are sold in galleries and stores internationally.
