During his childhood, Leonardo Nierman wanted to be a musician, and he devoted himself to violin for almost two decades. He took private lessons and later studied at the National Conservatory of Music in Mexico City, giving a recital at the prestigeous Palacio de Bellas Artes. One day he discovered that his talent was insufficient and that it does not correspond to his ambitions to be a great musician, so he leaves the violin. He began his studies in Business Administration at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). One day, when strolling in front of a material arts store, he feels great emotion looing at the boxes of colors thinks that art can be your new hobby and buy paints, brushes and canvas. In 1956, at the age of 24 years, he painted his first mural for the auditorium of its faculty, and thereafter takes off his career as an artist. He has participated in more than 100 solo exhibitions in galleries, museums and cultural centers in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. His sculptures, paintings, murals and tapestries can be found in major art collections in the world.
"I believe that the artist, in his peak of creation, makes a kind of homage to God, to the beauty of nature and to the miracle of being alive." - Leonardo Nierman
