About the artist
A short biography
© 1998 - 2021 Luis Núñez
Born  in  Marianao, Cuba, Luis  Núñez has resided in
Florida since 1960.

In 1977  he   graduated  with  a  degree  in electrical  
engineering  from the  University of Miami.

In 1987  Luis, who   always  had  an interest in  the  
visual arts,  started   painting  in oils  as  a   pastime.

Shortly   thereafter,  Luis’ paintings   began   to   
reveal   an   unusual quality,  which encouraged  him  
to broaden his    artistic  horizons  by   joining    
Florida International   University  as  a   visual  arts  
student.

In 1993,  he  graduated with  the degree of Bachelor
of Fine Arts, Magna Cum Laude. In his last  year  as  
a  student  at  FIU,    he  participated  in  the   1993   
Annual  Juried   Student  Exhibition,   where  he  
Luis Nez at the studio
received  the  event's  highest  award, the Perry Purchase Award.

His subject matter  is  varied,   from  still  lives   to  an  occasional portrait. However, landscape  painting  is his  
favorite form  of  expression.

Although,   Luis  invites the  opportunity to paint  any landscape anywhere in  the world, his heart  is  in  the
Florida  landscape.   His  Everglades,   Biscayne Bay,  Big Cypress and  Florida Keys paintings  capture the light,
colors and mood of this beautiful  and unique part of the world.

He  has  participated  in  numerous  juried  exhibitions  in  the  United States. His works are displayed  in private
collections throughout the United States, Europe, Central America and Australia   as   well  as   in   public   
collections  such  as  the   Florida Department of State, Florida   International  University   Art  in  Public  Places,   
Biscayne   National   Park,   The Miami-Dade College and the Frost Art Museum collections.
