Chris Peshlakai

Chris comes from a prominent, artistic family. His late father, Cliff Peshlakai, was a noted artist, and his uncle Norbert Peshlakai, is a well -known, award-winning jeweler, as is his cousin, Natasha Peshlakai-Haley.Chris is a stunningly gifted, self-taught painter with artistic genes that cannot be denied.
His paintings of landscapes are so realistic they surpass mere realism, and acquire a mystical, dream-like or spiritual, quality. Whether in acrylic, water-color, or oils, each painting is mesmerizing. He is undoubtedly influenced by the dramatic beauty of the landscapes around his part of the reservation, near Cuba, New Mexico.
