Naropa Sabine thinks and creates across different media. Born in Colorado and raised in the remote mountains of Appalachia, he was educated as a painter in Memphis, Tennessee. After receiving a European travel scholarship for museum study, he finished formal schooling in NYC. Subsequently he traveled throughout the world, read a million and one books, experimented and worked in video, theatre, music, poetry, and film, all the while continuing his practice of painting and mixed media assemblage. He has created numerous murals throughout America, shown artwork in NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Nashville. He has spent forever chasing friendship and revelation across our culture and history. He recently purchased a shack and studio in Paonia, Colorado from his mother’s first husband who painted there for 40 yrs. He looks forward to continuing that tradition.
