Michael Naranjo

During the Vietnam War, New Mexican sculptor Michael Naranjo was blinded. For the last 40 years, he has produced works of splendid artistry.

“If you want to do it, I guess you have to sit down and do it. When I could see, I always wanted to be a sculptor and I thought I would never be able to do that. But then I suddenly discovered I could do that with one hand, creating a very simple piece, and the moment I made that, I knew that I had my life, I had my purpose.”

“It’s really important to feel like you are safe and comfortable enough to just try things without knowing how it’s going to turn out.”
