Chip Thomas

Chip Thomas is a photographer, public artist, activist and physician who has been working between Monument Valley and The Grand Canyon in the Navajo Reservation since 1987. There, he coordinates the Painted Desert Project – a constellation of murals across the Navajo Nation painted by artists from all around the world. These murals aim to reflect the love, culture and rich history shared by the Navajo people back on to the community. He is a member of the Justseeds Artists Co-operative, a collective of 30 socially-engaged artists. You can find his large-scale photographs pasted on the roadside, on the sides of houses in the desert, and on the graphics of the Peoples Climate March + 350.org.
