A younger member of a multi-generational family of remarkable artists, Navajo painter Chris Peshlakai, is exceptionally talented and, amazingly, entirely self-taught.
He makes his landscapes come alive by including great detail in every element. His sense of perspective and proportion elevate his work beyond the merely realistic; the powerful sense of serenity produces an almost otherworldly feeling.
This magnificent painting celebrates the beauty of the southwestern landscape. It is as if we are looking through a window, with the artist, enjoying the view of his homeland. The scene is full of realistic and natural elements, with your focus drawn from the foreground towards the oncoming storm over the distant mountains.
Talented with well-refined techniques, and young enough that his style is still evolving, Chris has used his phenomenal eye for realism in nature to create yet another memorable work of art!
