Departing from his typical practice of covering the entire jacket with painted design, artist David Naranjo has opted for a more understated vertical band of design on the front and back of this gorgeous piece. Using symbols from his native Santa Clara Puebloan iconography, painted in traditional black and brown, he has created a wonderful, symmetrical balance with a strong focal point in the middle. Paired with the classic gold silk, the effect gives this piece a refined grandeur. 

Wear this one over a simple black top and narrow leg pant with a pair of turquoise and silver earrings to your next dinner out and celebrate the native cultures of the American southwest... in style!

About David Naranjo

Artist DAVID NARANJO  My name is David A. Naranjo and I am from Santa Clara Pueblo. I am a contemporary Puebloan artist and currently a senior at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, working in multiple mediums to depict cultural symbolism through Puebloan pottery designs and fine geometrical linear work.

Art Coat Painted by DAVID NARANJOMy inspiration has come from learning the Tewa language. While learning the language, I obtained a deeper understanding and connection of 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 of poetry and seek to show understanding and respect while making art as a form of prayer and ceremony.
