Omar d'Leon

Omar d’Leon is one of the most renowned painters and poets to come from Nicaragua in the last 50 years. His early inspirations were the frescos of Pompeii, where he saw the use of cross-hatching and applied this technique to his love of the Impressionist school. He is best known for his brilliant graffito paintings of magical scenes inspired by mythology. His paintings are housed in many museums.
