José Nunez was born in 1945 in El Salvador and moved to California in 1996. Shortly thereafter, he began making art at Creativity Explored’s studio in San Francisco.

Nunez’s primary media are marker and acrylic paint applied in fluid, rhythmic lines. The flora and fauna of his beloved El Salvador occupy a large portion of his attention. The stroke used to delineate the shapes of his objects is simple, assured, and perfectly controlled. Often these subjects are repeated, or elongated, to fill the picture plane. Palomas, Plantas Y Figuras lean and sway to coexist equally in the frame, rarely touching but very close, often separated by long-stemmed flowers tipped with color. Hints and washes of color are added to punctuate the strength and delicacy of his line.

Drawing from traditional religious sculpture and painting, Nunez recently began a series of angelic portraiture, differentiated from his previous figures by a set of feathered wings, tiny upraised arms and a spike of laurel.
