This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born on October 31, 1955, in Bogota, Colombia.

He traveled to Spain in 1978 and began working for the renowned sculptor Francisco Baron. While with Francisco, Nano carved marble, granite and fabricated steel, working with all three materials on a monumental scale. It was in Madrid that he began casting his own works in bronze and had his first single artist show. After two years, Nano made his way to France, where he continued to study and show his work.

At the Superior National School of Beaux Arts in Paris, Nano focused his studies in new materials and discovered the versatility of polyester as a casting medium. In 1981 he returned to Bogota to build a studio and put to use the methods he had learned in Europe. In 1983 he moved again, this time to the Pacific Northwest Coast of the United States. He began to work with Manuel Izquierdo, head of the sculpture department at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. During the following four years, he was employed by various bronze foundries in the Northwest and further developed his abilities in welding, tooling and patinas.

In 1988 Nano began his own business enlarging small maquettes to monumental sizes.

Nano has continued to produce his own sculptures and two-dimensional works. His subject matter, primarily figurative, describes the essential in the human condition -- in a strong and emotionally charged way. Surface texture is an important element in both his two-and three-dimensional pieces. The combination of his classical training and experimentation with materials has led to the production of avant-garde art which combines aesthetic considerations and rich textural surfaces.
