fine art by NICK CRUZ VELLEMAN.
about the artist.
I’m a Peruvian/Filipino-American artist born and raised in Washington, D.C.
While living there I worked as a manager and director for the 9:30 Club, taught in the high school studio art department at Georgetown Day School, 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 mindfulness it can yield ...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
