"Oguwee Whang (Roadrunner Tail)" Art Coat by David Naranjo

What a gorgeous effect Naranjo created with this new piece! Using repeating bars of vertical motifs, arranged in mirror image to one another above and below a set of fine thin horizontal lines wrapping around the center, he has made a look that is strong yet restrained. The symmetry of the design, based in Puebloan iconography and depicting a road runner tail, gives a power and stability to the piece as well as beauty. His choice of of deep grey paint, with micaceous oxides added for a little shimmer, looks stunning against the rich burgundy silk background. Naranjo has nailed it again with "Road Runner Tail!"

Picture yourself wearing this over smoky grey or basic black with a matching chunky silver necklace and earring on a special evening out. What a portrait of beauty and individuality!

with black shantung silk lining. 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.”
