Collection: Leonardo Nierman

Nierman from Mexico City states, “Music and painting are very much alike – both have tonalities, rhythms, high-intensity areas, and resting areas.

His work has been classified as “magical expressionism.” He painted abstract forms with movement and rhythm using bright colors. His work is not narrative. He described his work as an interaction of colors which create a moment. While abstract, elements of nature are present in his works with elements such as wind, water, lightning, fire and volcanic eruptions.

He is best known for his abstract landscape paintings, full of color and movement and often cosmic or terrestrial in nature.  In 1972, he had a major exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City and from that time on has had exhibition venues throughout the world including the United States, Italy, Israel, Australia, Spain and Japan.
