Devin Nelson

Devin Nelson is an artist from Houston, Texas and works as a studio artist, painting instructor, and commission painter.

As a teacher, Devin gives a variety of lectures and classes on different subjects ranging from traditional techniques to realist aesthetic philosophies and their application. His main genres in art remain true to the classical subjects such as portraiture and landscape scenes, though pursued with modern intuition and curiosity.

His pursuit of excellence led him to the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy where he later graduated in 2016 after three years of study. While supporting himself financially through teaching and painting, Devin was steeped in the culture of Florence in a way that redefined what art meant to him each day. The school teaches drawing and painting in the tradition of French and Italian Academies by teaching the techniques of master classical artists.
