Raul de Nieves is a unique rarity of color and delirious art. Born September 29, 1983 in Morelia Michuacan, Mexico. Ten years later he was forced to flee to America and settled in San Diego. The powerfully appealing Raul utilizes techniques written and described by SALVADOR DALI. By using such knowledge, he creates explosive art full of detail and obsession, which can be seen in his paintings, installations, performance and costume work. It is his goal to produce an environment that draws the viewer into his dynamically layered world.

Raul currently resides in New York City where he has been working on his latest installment of Mikilandia Productions, with the help of Mikki M. Olson. This latest work is Blancas Negras, a blending of all Raul’s art forms without a shade of gray in sight. Forgetting what a painting traditionally is, Raul cannot be contained on a two dimensional plane. Painting and sculpture hold hands to create a unconventional world where no rules exist an the performance of TRY CRY TRY will sing their songs and dance their dances to a melody of paranoiac critical thinking.
