Jose Luis Nunez - Meet the Artist

Join us to meet this talented Artist and hear him speak about his creative process.

Jose Luis Nunez - Meet the Artist

Jose Luis Nunez is a painter who enjoys conveying color and the   vibrations of light and shade. Color symbolizes life and radiant plenitude   in his paintings. Nunez often paints with oils and acrylics allowing for   thick layers of paint and the inclusion of tangible brush strokes.

He paints a broad range of topics that reflect his varied interests. The   fascination of the effects of light on the painting subjects is what   brought him to paint, making the presence of light and shade a leading   element in his work.

Whenever possible, Nunez prefers to work   directly from his subject. He goes out-of-doors to make plein air   paintings. When creating paintings in situ, he works on a smaller scale.   Sometimes these small paintings, along with accompanying photographs of   the site, become source material for his larger works, creating a layered   process that combines elements of experience, sketching, photography and   memory.

Born in Mexico City, José Luis began painting at the age   of thirteen, followed by studies in Art and Philosophy in Spain, Italy and   Mexico. He studied Painting and Metal engraving on a graduate level at the   National Autonomous University of Mexico and has exhibited in more than 40   shows in different countries, including individual and group exhibitions   in the United States, Brazil [masked]), Argentina (1999), Costa Rica   (1998) and Mexico.

Jose Luis Nunez also devotes time to art   education holding periodic workshops in his studio. Jose Luis is an   associate member of Oil Painters of America. After living in Brazil for   three years, he moved to the USA. He currently lives and works in Danbury,   Connecticut.

    I drove all the way to Danbury area (after work), through loads of traffic, and my GPS messed up. Quite disappointing.

    Hi Everyone!

    After visiting the exhibition we plan to go to the Kibberia in Danbury to grab a bite. The artist will bring wine to share (since the restaurant does not have a liquor license). If you prefer to drink something else, feel free to bring it. The Kibberia is a Middle Eastern food restaurant on 93 Mill Plain Rd, Danbury.

    See you at the Show!
