Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 2001
by John Nieto
Twenty-third in the series by John Nieto.One of the most important artists working in the United States today, Nieto pioneered contemporary interpretations of the Southwest, turning traditional subjects into timeless icons of brilliant color. His paintings and prints are universally recognized and highly valued, having been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa. Included in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Nieto is a recipient of New Mexico's prestigious Governor's Award for achievement in the arts. In this 30th anniversary commemorative poster for the Balloon Fiesta, he portrays a coyote in the tranquil desert landscape, undisturbed by the lighter-than-air ships floating in the stunning variegated blue sky above. This is a rare opportunity to acquire an original silk-screen print by an internationally collected artist at an outstanding value.
