"A Colorful Soul"

Some believe talent is given at birth, others that talent is developed through out life. In the case of Norlan, his passsion and love for painting has been present since he was five years old, when instead of playing with toys like the rest of his peers , he'd rather grab a pencil and paper and draw away.

A CREATIVE MIND

Norlan has always been passionate about art, but it wasn't until high school when he discovered painting as his life purpose, he poured his heart out on every single drawing or painting. Teachers and family members realized how talented he was and mentioned it many times until he decided to start his career as an artist at the age of 15.

He started as an independent artist creating paintings inspired by his imagination and surroundings. He started selling his paintings outside his house to pedestrians . The selling of these first creations was a big success, people in Masaya were more and more fascinated by his work and started to order specific paintings from him.

THE VOICE OF THE ARTIST

In an interview, Norlan shared that his biggest inspiration is his family: "They're the reason why I wake up every morning and give my best, without them I wouldn't have the motivation to paint".

When asked about his bright colors and temper, he mentioned: "One of the main reasons why my paintings are so bright and colorful is that my family makes me happy, the mood is something that influences a lot when creating something new".

His wife and son are very proud of him, his wife mentioned that he would court her with small paintings every time they met.
