Critically acclaimed, knighted artist Gustavo Duque has been a New Orleans resident for 20 years.
Born in Colombia, Gustavo Duque's work can be found in collections of museums internationally.


His ethereal and sometimes surreal imagery express a deep sympathy for humanity. Gustavo is a man of great warmth and his work displays a deep love for nature's landscape. His signature figures stand alone, together, and even beside the viewer.

I love to paint. 

With my oils and acrylics I explore landscapes that are more emotional than physical.

Humanity and Love in all of their stages are the roots of my work.

I travel to places I've been and ones that I have dreamt.
