DAVID MANN ARTIST
American Indian Art

David Mannís life focus has been his interest in the Native American culture, horses, and art. As a child, the artist collected any Remington
 and Russell prints he found along with books illustrated by Will James, Paul Brown, and Wesly Dennis.

Mann knows his subjects well from studying the history and culture of the Western Indian tribes. Born in Utah, the artist lived among the Southwestern tribes during a two-year mission in New Mexico and Arizona. During his time with the San Carlos Apache, Navajo, and 
Pueblo tribes, Mann absorbed Layers of meaning that give depth to the human stories he tells. This unforgettable and invaluable time 
spent with the Indians allowed the artist to experience first-hand the stories, dignity, and culture magic of their lives. Mannís paintings 
are alive in rich colors, remarkable illusion of day and moonlight, and energetic or quiet compositions.
