ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: NATHAN SOLANO
In any ordinary moment of the day, the art of Nathan Solano finds extraordinary beauty and a certain sense of honesty. His use of light and texture create engaging canvases of pristine snow, gritty cattle drives or rugged warriors. Light dances in his paintings and you feel as though you are there.
Solano was born in Utah, and attended the University of Colorado. He was drafted and did a tour in Vietnam as an infantry sergeant. Nathan spent a number of years working in Colorado and Florida as a photographer, illustrator, and art director for advertising agencies. In 1987 he began painting for a living and has never looked back.
His work has been featured in Southwest Art, Artists Magazine, Taos Magazine, Western Horseman Magazine, and Cowboys & Indians. Most recently Nathan’s work was featured in the Western Art Collector Magazine.
