B. C. Nowlin's paintings reflect his cross-cultural background. A native of New Mexico, Nowlin's family land formed the southern boundary of the Sandia Pueblo Reservation. Nowlin came of age steeped in childhood experiences of vibrant Native American history. A story-teller on canvas, Nowlin's paintings often employ the use of texture to draw the eye in. Entirely self-taught, Nowlin has created a visual catalogue of spiritual journeys that have become his signature imagery. Nowlin's work reflects a stunning array of style, complex originality and breadth of imagery that has attracted exhibitions in galleries and private and corporate collections worldwide.
B.C. Nowlin's visionary work has been the subject of newspaper and magazine articles as well as television documentaries. His art has been featured on album covers and in Hollywood films. B. C. Nowlin resides in New Mexico and rides his motorcycle across the Rio Grande river to his studio where he paints and writes.
