Dylan Poblano is a wonderfully creative and distinguished artist from Zuni. He studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. His mother is award-winning carver and jeweler Veronica Poblano, while his grandfather was noted artist Leo Poblano (d). His sister is carver and beadworker Jovanna Poblano.
Dylan's latest offering is an original and vibrant acrylic painting titled "Zuni Hotshots". In the postwar era, Native American fire suppression crews started across the United States and Alaska, including Zuni Pueblo. Active to this day, they're called “Hotshot” crews as they work the hottest part of wildfires. They're the most fit, experienced and highly trained.
Chopping wood while perhaps dreaming of his true love, an off duty Zuni Hotshot works away. His Stihl chainsaw is close by, as well as a journal or maybe a buzzing cell phone, and a bagged lunch. The greenery such as the tall pine tree, yucca plant and blooming cactus are amazing. Signed by the artist. About 8" by 10". Extra shipping charges may apply.
