laudio Nalerio was born on the coast of Montevideo, Uruguay in a historic neighborhood called Palermo. At an early age, he fell in love with the Spanish and Italian influenced architecture that was prevalent in his city, where Tango was born out of the melancholy of the Spanish and Italian immigrants.
Claudio was introduced to painting at the age of 16 where he sold his work in an old square in Pocitos. His paintings captured the architecture of buildings that surrounded him in his daily life. Today his work is more personal and reflects his remembrances of time that was simpler and void of technology. His work seeks to show the marking of time when the non-digital world meets digital and the immense and irreversible impact it has on human life.
