Default Nexus 5 screen shacking/wobbling/freezing

Goodmorning, last March I purchased a Nexus 5, but since two weeks, the screen has begun to shake, wobbling and then freezing like in the picture below...The screen shows this image even if I try to reboot the sistem or if I try to boot in fastboot mode. The problem goes away after something like 10/15 mins of shutdown, but after a day or two, it comes back. I tried to unroot the phone and installing again stock Android (I used Cyanogenmod) and nothing seems to be solved. What could it be? A firmware issue? An hardware issue (more likely)? Should I contact Google assistance for a new device?

Thank you

Ensure its fully returned to stock then go the warranty route

Custom Kernels can cause problems like this due to bugged GPU drivers.

Check if this happens on Stock ROM and Stock Kernel after a factory reset. - How to: Flash Nexus 5 Factory Images
Make sure to backup your data externally/online before doing a factory reset as it will completely the wipe phone.

If the problems still persist after full factory reset, ask for a replacement - The customer support reps at the Play Store are very undestanding.
Sometimes a faulty display connector can cause problems like this.
