Arturo Chavez brings his passionate, sublime, and evocative inner world to life, intensely identifying himself by way of his work. His obsession with painting spans a lifetime of more than forty years exploring and mastering his art…
His early infatuation with classical guitar gave him precision, discipline and self-knowledge as an artist while studying music at the University if New Mexico. Turning his talent to painting in 1983, Chavez has pursued visual art as a full time profession. His paintings are in numerous collections, both private and public in the U.S. and abroad.
Arturo was born in Embudo in 1949 near Taos nestled along the Rio Grande River and raised between Chimayo and Los Alamos, where he continues to paint a broad cross section of subject matter from western landscapes to figurative wildlife.
