One of the most iconic works of the late Leonardo Da Vinci is “The Last Supper,” a 15th-century mural depicting the final moments of Jesus Christ with his disciples before his crucifixion. None have been able to interpret the piece of art in a way that sufficiently honors the legendary artist’s work and life. That is until Nemo Intelligere put his mind and hands to work and created what has become a symbol of the Renaissance in today’s modern times.
Nemo is not an artist of this time. While modern in his approach to art and connected to the pain points and realities of today, his mind seems connected to the glorious days of enlightenment. His work brings to life the beauty of the past while decoding the mysteries of times beyond history. Art enthusiasts and critics have described the artist as a “true renaissance mind living in the now.”
One of Nemo’s most iconic works is “The Grail 2019,” a wall-mounted sculpture that gloriously interprets Leonardo Davinci’s “The Last Supper.” The sculpture is his first solo commission and has been dubbed as the artist’s tribute to the late creator and revolutionary thinker as the world celebrated Da Vinci’s 500th anniversary.
Nemo’s crown sculpture measures five feet high and twenty-five feet long and sits among a private collection. “The Grail 2019” flawlessly mirrors the elegant style of “The Last Supper” and gives Leonardo Da Vinci’s genius complete justice. Each of the twelve disciples and Christ’s images are individually molded and coated in a majestic golden coat, transporting any witnesses into the enigmatic and poignant moments on the night of Jesus’ betrayal.
The artist has dedicated much of his time and effort to studying the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. “No other artist ever mattered more to me,” shares Nemo about his love and appreciation for the art icon. “He was something much greater than an artist and that’s what resonates in me.” To Nemo, his milestone of creation is his most rooted dedication to the artist who shaped his life and the world as we know it.
Nemo spent a significant portion of his career working in the background as a working apprentice to another notable artist. He worked hard to learn and discover, seeking inspiration that would mark out his art and connect people to the divine. His search brought him to realities and revelations that brought the art prodigy a realization of man’s true identity. “When you work in the spirit you see things, patterns, codes,” shares the artist. “Some codes take years to reveal themselves, sometimes five hundred years. They say don’t give pearls to the pigs, but some secrets are meant to be discovered.”
With his whole life marked out by the path to more significant epiphanies, Nemo has followed his heart, trusting his experiences and building the confidence to pursue his real purpose. Today, Nemo has dedicated his life to helping people understand the individual relationships we have with the core of creation. He hopes that his art and life will give his audience a more profound spiritual revelation and that his art will point people to truths that connect with them.
