BIOGRAPHY:
Abstract expressionist Leonardo Nierman is a leader in the vibrant theater of modern Mexican art. Known for paintings that combine precise crystalline geometry with fiery, amorphous forms suggestive of lava flows or events in the cosmos, Nierman hearkens back to his Mexican predecessors, as well as to
the modern lessons of cubism and modernist internationalism, combining western artistic revolutions.
Shortly after graduating with a degree in physics and mathematics from National University of Mexico, Nierman undertook studies of the psychology of color, the harmony of both static and moving forms in space, and the relationship between abstract art and the cosmic phenomena. His first major work was a
grand mural at the National University of Mexico, and since that time his works have been acquired into numerous public collections.
Music, the artist's primary inspiration, is reflected both in the movement of his compositions and in the ghostly violins that fade in and out of the swirling paint. Formerly lead violinist for the Mexico Symphony Orchestra, Leonardo Nierman regards music as the highest art form.
In the face of his creative vision, his humility is revealed when he states "Music can transport you in a few seconds to a flamenco experience in Granada, Spain or can seat you at a banquet in Elizabethan England or medieval France. It can project you into time, into any country, any culture. Nothing can do
that better than music."
