About the Artist: Leonardo Nuñez
Leonardo lives and works in Lompoc, California. For many years he has volunteered his time with the California Youth Authority at the Los Prietos Boys Camp. Leonardo also speaks and conducts workshops on a variety of topics, from printmaking and the art of the mural, to color theory and specific mediums, such as acrylics.From the etching of small copper plates used to produce a series of prints depicting the California missions, to murals eighty feet wide, such as the Randolph Mansion mural located in Lompoc, Leonardo moves easily between mediums. He has also produced an extensive series of the homeless he has met at the Midnight Mission in Los Angeles. Leonardo’s Homeless Series covers a wide range of mediums including, oils, acrylics, linoleum cuts, and copper plate etchings. What is most remarkable about this artist is his ability to maintain a high degree of craftsmanship, no matter what medium or form he is working in. The fusion of art and craft is something not easily found these days. Visit Leonardo’s website at www.leonardonunez.com.
