Lorenzo Chavez is an admired landscape painter living in Parker, Colorado. A native of New Mexico, he fell in love with Colorado when he studied at the Colorado Institute of Art in 1983, graduating with honors. He started working as a commercial artist out of school, then turned to fine art in his mid-20’s and has been doing that ever since.
This past April, Gallery East at the University of Utah Eastern in Price, Utah hosted an exhibition titled “Wandering the Colorado Plateau,” featuring 45 works from artist Lorenzo Chavez. Each piece was inspired by or painted on location in the Colorado Plateau, an area Chavez has been painting since the 1990’s. We followed up with Chavez to discuss the region and why it’s so important to his work.
