Nicolas Leiva graduated from the Universidad Nacional de Tucuman, continued his studies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and moved to Miami in 1990 when Miami's ascendancy as the capital of Latin American art and as a player in the international contemporary art scene were becoming established. Leiva, who now splits his time between Italy and the U.S., has exhibited widely and completed commissions throughout Latin America, the U.S. and Europe, as well as South Africa and the Middle East. He was recently selected for the prestigious 2013 Bienal del Sur de Panama. His work can be found in many public collections including those of Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires; Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, CA; and Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
