artist profile: josé nuñez

Untitled is an exciting premiere collaboration for bedding with our friends at San Francisco’s Creativity Explored, a nonprofit visual arts center where artists with developmental disabilities create, exhibit and sell art.

Studio artist José Nuñez was born in 1945 in
El Salvador, moved to California in 1996, and began creating art at the studio in the late 90s.

His beloved homeland inspires much of his work by way of nature—both flora and fauna. Also, figures and faces made with few strokes sit atop extremely long legs and are often separated by color tipped flowers.

Hints and washes of color are added to punctuate and accent the strength and delicacy of his line.

Six handmade screens—one for each color—translate the original untitled ink and pencil piece from art canvas to cotton bedding.

To spend one minute with José Nuñez in the Creativity Explored studio, go here.
