"The romance of life and culture are the essence of art. Mystery, emotions, the poetry of color and light.... all are elements of art and architecture. I believe we need to experience art, that our life passages need to be filled with those elements." -- Nelson Duran

Nelson Antonio Duran was born in Honduras, Central America and came to the United States to attend university after
winning a Central American Peace Scholarship.
Nelson graduated with a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Idaho in 2002 with four years of study in architecture, interior design and fine art.
During his studies, he was influenced by the colorful architecture of Luis Barragan, the designs of Piero Fornasetti and the elements of Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Marc Chagall. His primary medium is acrylic on canvas, but he also works with watercolor, pencil and charcoal.
The main inspirations for his ethereal "Love Letters" Collection come from his wife's studies in France, his Latin culture, literary works and the romance of Italian frescos.
