Micheal Namingha lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico and is from a family of accomplished artists. He is a multidisciplinary artist with a spare, contemporary aesthetic. A keen observer of today’s society, he creates a compelling mix of imagery and words commenting on modern impersonal relations and contemporary culture. His ability to distill everyday conversational statements results in work that surprises and engages the viewer. His current body of work explores the vanishing and changing landscape of the American West.
Namingha received his BBA in Design and Management from Parsons School of Design in New York City and attended Master Classes at the Santa Fe Art Institute in 1996-97. His work can be found in a number of public collections, including the Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colorado, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts, Newark Museum, Newark, New Jersey and the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, California.
