Check out this new piece by one of Singular’s masters, David Naranjo. Here, he’s chosen a little different approach from some of his other pieces by placing all the design energy in a vertical column that runs up and down both front and back. It creates a strong, grounded, symmetry with a bit of a slimming effect. He's added natural mica to his paint to create a rich, glittery gunmetal grey, which is a stunning combo with the deep burgundy color of the silk and is a look that can go day into evening.
Imagine how dynamite you’d look in this jacket over a simple black top and pants with a single chunky modern necklace and cuff bracelet. Or throw it over a stretch white tee with your best skinny jeans. You can’t go wrong with this one!

David Naranjo's Bio
Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico
“I am a contemporary Puebloan artist and a 2018 graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, working in multiple media to depict cultural symbolism through pottery designs and fine geometrical linear work.”
“My inspiration comes from learning the Tewa language of my Pueblo. While learning the language, I obtained a deeper understanding of and connection to our cultural practices and found that a lot can be said with few words because you speak from your heart. I found our way of life to be a form or poetry and seek to show understanding and respect while making art as a form of prayer and ceremony.”
“Puebloan symbols and iconography hold meaning and purpose within our cultural setting. I am creating my own personal narratives and stories using these traditional designs.”
