Nani Chacon is an accomplished mural artist and fine art painter based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Both a Diné (Navajo) and Chicana woman, Chacon grew up between Chinli, Arizona and Corrales, New Mexico. Her work explores topics such as femininity, culture, traditionalism, and modernism.
Chacon’s art has taken her around the world, and most recently to Russia, where she was commissioned to create a mural on the wall of the Municipal Arts Gallery on Izhevsk’s central square.
In this video, Nani Chacon combines her mural art with her fine art panel paintings to create a unique compositional experience for her debut show at Blue Rain Gallery.
