"Oh Huwa (Clouds)" Art Vest by David Naranjo

This spring has been a wonderful wet year in the southwest, bringing green life to the desert. We wonder if that is what inspired artist David Naranjo to create this dazzler! Here he has used traditional Puebloan cloud motifs and has blown them up to oversized depictions and filled them with slanted diagonal rain lines in a bold, contemporary design.
The turquoise paint on hot pink silk in multiple parallel lines creates an optical effect that makes the designs seem to jump off the fabric and vibrate with energy, just like the energy of our springtime when life bursts back into being!
This amazing piece can be worn dressed up over black with a fabulous necklace and bracelet, or wear it casually with a favorite pair of jeans and white tee. Either way you'll look like a million!
Hot pink shantung silk shell 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.”
