investigates themes through painting such as identity, memory, cultural nourishment,
dreams and celebration. Within these archetypes he is often drawn to aspects of
relationships (within ourselves as well as between people and with the environment- urban,
natural and cosmic.) In the spirit of being ecologically aware, he also tends to use
recycled or found objects such as doors, windows, headboards, found paper and existing
paintings as his canvases. For Navar art is an essential source of his inner
energy. It serves as a gateway into a festive state of peace, reflection and
consider my artistic expressions a manifestation of my creative rejoicing.
Navar has exhibited widely in
California including the Mission Cultural Center, Vorpal Gallery and the Richmond Art
Center. He has also been featured in local and national newspapers including the San
Francisco Chronicle, Oakland Tribune, and Artweek.
