Artist David Naranjo is a master at adapting his native Puebloan iconography to the Singular art coat medium. With this exquisite new piece he's painted vertical design panels along each side of the front opening, with a different but similarly shaped motif centered vertically on the back. It's a flattering, body-lengthening line. You can see the bird motifs of the parrot symbol, a traditionally greatly valued animal traded by Puebloan peoples from regions farther south in Mexico by wandering "Kokopelli" figures. The design is not perfectly symmetric however, and closer inspection reveals the eye of the bird on one side of the front, and varying sized swirling tail designs on the back, adding a level of beauty and intrigue to the overall look.

The simple black paint on the rich lilac silk, with royal purple silk lining makes a stunning combination. And Naranjo's oversized and stylized Native designs are handled so that they look at home in either Santa Fe or New York City.

Imagine yourself stepping out of a cab at an elegant opening in this incredible piece over basic black with a contemporary silver necklace... wow!

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.”
