Arturo has been painting professionally for nearly 20 years. His art work extends from realistic landscapes to layered abstract Indian Dancers to whimsical figurative painting of cats and dogs. However, Arturo is most well-known for his wide open landscapes.





" is the ability of line to convey movement that is vital to all his art."  The Santa Fean Magazine, August 1991.

"Arturo's work combines his rich New Mexico heritage with an international sophistication...Life is full for this native son who celebrates life and the land with his art and in doing so, lends the rest of us a bit of his magic." Focus Santa Fe, October 2000.

"New Mexico landscape painter Arturo Antonio Chavez is an artist of great skill creating some of the most compelling images of the American Southwest...One look at one of Arturo's landscape paintings and it is immediately apparent to the viewer that this relationship of artist to landscape is a long-lived love match." Tradicion Revista, Fall 2001.
