Nemesio Antunez (1918-1993). Born in Santiago Chile in 1918, Antunez studied architecture at the Catholic University of Santiago and completed his studies in New York at Columbia University.


He had long made up his mind to be an artist having already held an exhibition in Chile in 1943 and after gaining his degree in architecture in 1945, mounted his first one man show in New York that year. He lived in New York for twelve years concentrating on his painting before settling finally in England after spending some time in both Chile and Spain.


Antunez was an artist of the emotions. Antunez's touch can also be poetic and surrealist. He had held many one man exhibitions throughout the world. The United Nations Building in New York houses one of his larger works and he is included in many public and private collections worldwide.
