Artist brochure I designed for Artist Ed Sandoval who works and lives in Taos, New Mexico.
Born in Nambe, New Mexico, to a prominent Spanish family, Ed Sandoval spent his childhood with a foot in two worlds; on his family’s ranch in Nambe and in Los Alamos, where his father worked as an engineer. Benefiting from a great education both Academically and in the Arts, Ed graduated from Los Alamos High School, before earning his B.A in Fine Arts from Eastern New Mexico University.
He received a Masters Degree in Psychology from the University of Utah and after teaching Art there, for two years, he retiurned to Northern New Mexico where he headed up the Art Department at Los Alamos High School for almost a decade.
During the late 1970’s, Ed moved to Truchas, New Mexico with the intention of finding his unique “voice” as an artist, and as fate would have it, discovered that Robert Redford had chosen the small town along the High Road as the location for his acclaimed movie adaption of Taos resident, John Nichols’ book, The Milagro Beanfield War.
As a resident of Taos for the past two decades, Ed is one of the most collected painters in the region while remaining one of the most unassuming and approachable artists in town. Most days, weather permitting he can be found painting in the parking lot of his gallery on Paseo del Pueblo Norte or riding one of his gorgeous Arabian steeds through the Plaza (often dressed as Zorro).
Ed Sandoval’s paintings have been commissioned for numerous posters, book covers and wine labels. He has been profiled in Art Magazines and newspapers nationally, and his collectors are from all over the world. Sandoval is a frequent visitor to South America.
In 2012, New Mexico’s Centenial Year, Ed Sandoval was awarded the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. A great and well deserved honor for one of New Mexico’s most accomplished artists and native sons.
His work is shown in these galleries:
