American painter and tapestry designer. His most famous work is "The Communion of Saints", a series of tapestry panels in the interior of the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles.
Figurative painter John Nava weaves his work with an innate sense of light, a contemporary realist style, and classic old master traditions. "I want to make the figure appear in a stunning way. I want to make it beautiful," he states.
Nava received his Bachelors of Art from the University of California at Santa Barbara and Masters of Fine Art from the Villa Schifanoia in Italy. His work is exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan - including the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C. and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. In 1999, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles commissioned the artist to create a series of large-scale tapestries for the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles.
