Animazing Gallery began in 1984 as a gallery specializing in conceptual animation art. Over time, the collection expanded to include works by a wide range of renowned Illustrators and pop culture artists. The gallery opened it doors in Las Vegas in 2017 with an expanded showroom and an even more expanded repertoire of classic illustrators and contemporary artists.  Animazing Gallery has become an industry stronghold for illustration art and contemporary art inspired by the masters of illustration.

Upon acquiring a collection of comic strips by Charles M. Schulz in 1995, the gallery began to focus on Great American Illustrators. In the gallery’s search to find art exhibiting “the perfect line”, the owner soon discovered an important collection of drawings and watercolors by Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. The artwork was exhibited in numerous museum exhibitions. 

Director Nicholas Leone serves as a consultant for numerous auction houses and also handles gallery sales and acquisitions. 

“Our dreams and fantasies are rooted from childhood with characters that have greatly impacted us, shaped us and live deep within us. The gallery allows us to reconnect to our youth and experience this magical world. Allowing the viewer  to embark on a journey by interacting once again with their past by bridging the present forward. A world where reality and imagination are blurred and the gallery experience is simply just the beginning.”

-Nicholas T. Leone

"From my first conversation with Nicholas Leone, I instinctively knew this was a genuine guy. After the conversation was over, I thought to myself, 'I need to work with this man.'"

- Fabio Napoleoni, Artist
