Leonardo Nierman was born in Mexico City in 1932. From early childhood he showed great interest in drawing and music. In 1951 he received his Bachelor degree in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Mexico. Later he studied the Psychology of Colour and the Harmony of Form in Space, both static and dynamic. These studies were instrumental in shaping up his vision of non-objective interpreter of nature and, in doing so, launched him on a search for relationship between abstract art and the cosmic phenomena.

His works are collected world wide, by not only individuals, but corporations, museums and galleries. In 1952 he painted a mural at the School of Commerce of the University City in Mexico. The University of Mexico awarded him an Honorary Degree in 1960. The Museum of Modern Art in Mexico acquired his paintings "SOLAR SYSTEM" and "TENEMENT" in 1962. From this time, until today the global community of collectors of his works are so numerous it would take 6 pages to list them all.

Leonardo became a Life Fellow of "THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF THE ARTS" in London and was awarded the Palme D'Or des Beaux Arts of Monaco.  City of Chicago proclamation, Office of the Mayor, proclaimed December 19, 2002 "Leonardo Nierman Day in Chicago".  He received the "Gloria Award" in 2003 from the International Latino Cultural Center, Chicago, Il.

"Painting is to me the aperture through which it is possible to enter a certain world; in it the viewer may find an endless number of magic images, objects, remembrances, associations, fears, joys, hopes and dreams.

Colours I think of as I think of sounds; one sound means almost nothing and one isolated colour means very little, but a certain organization of sounds may become a glorious symphony. A certain organization of colours can unleash a tempest of emotions in a perceptive viewer.

The hands should become the tools of destiny and the eyes should become silent witnesses to the dialogue between the stars and the poet. My painting is the mirror of the man I am; with an endless reflection of myself, my dreams, my joys and my sorrows, it is a product of my most primitive instincts, stimulation's and impulses. It is the choice of isolation and loneliness in the motion of time.

It is my non-verbal world surrounded by combat, stress and sights; joy, sensuality and death. Dreams, moments of ecstasy in the creation of images. Piercing the darkness, radiant smoke and dust, a world of volcanic vapors, lava, storms, prehistoric vegetation, bottoms of oceans, enchanted caves filled with stars, precious stones and cosmic winds ascending into the silence of infinity.".....Leonardo Nierman
