On this beautiful piece, artist David Naranjo is opting for a lilttle restraint by keeping the design to an elegant, and shape flattering hourglass line of triangles on the front and an elongated "eye" pattern on the back. Thin parallel lines within the triangles add a level of richness and interest, and all hand painted lines are rendered with his signature precision. Naranjo added some micaceous oxides to the silver paint for an extra metallic shimmer, which is wonderfully set off by the silver lining fabric that peeks out at the cuffs and collar. Dress this one up over classic black with chunky silver jewelry, or dress down over a white blouse and your favorite skinny jeans and ballet flats. Either way this one's a winner!

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.
