Naropa Sabine has worked in numerous artistic disciplines, engaging in literary as well as visual and musical formats. Born in Colorado and raised in a remote mountain monastery in 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 extensively in video, theatre, music, poetry, and film, while continuing his practice of painting and mixed media assemblage.
He has created numerous murals throughout America and showed artwork in various cities. Clay has become an important new medium and has inspired new directions in his work. He still travels widely and has a magic shack and studio in Paonia, Colorado which he purchased from his mother's first husband who painted there for 40 yrs. He looks forward to continuing that tradition.
