fine art by NICK CRUZ VELLEMAN.
about the artist.
I’m an American artist of Peruvian/Filipino descent born and raised in Washington, D.C.
While living there I taught in the high school studio art department at Georgetown Day School, worked as a manager and director for the 9:30 Club, and performed locally and regionally as a musician with various groups. I’ve also spent much of my life in Aix-en-Provence, France, where I studied painting and drawing on-and-off since 2009, and earned my M.F.A. degree from the Marchutz School of Fine Arts in 2020.
I aspire to a career of teaching art, creativity, and the mental health benefits that come with it ...while traveling the world and painting, of course.
"...with his art he can inspire others to connect to the world and with themselves."
-- Alan Roberts, Dean of the Marchutz School of Fine Arts
