Artist David Naranjo's signature bold use of oversized native Puebloan symbols on Singular pieces creates a rich, powerful look that is never overpowering because of his restrained black-on-color palette. For this knock out piece, he's added micaceous oxide to gunmetal grey paint for an added luster against the deep magenta of the silk fabric. Corn is central to traditional Pueblo life, as sustenance and in sacred ritual, and is represented here with symmetrical corn symbols arranged with a central diamond on both front and back sides. The effect is stunning over basic black with a silver cuff bracelet and simple geometric silver earrings...wow!

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.
