This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Having spent his boyhood in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the land of his Spanish ancestors, he had a maternal grandmother who was the famous potter, Maria Martinez. His early art teacher was Frank McCulloch, and from visiting museums, Chavez was inspired by New Mexico painters, Ernest Blumenschein and Peter Hurd.

In 1980, Chavez moved to Denver and attended the Colorado Institute of Art and supported himself with commercial illustration. Finally he was successful enough to make a living from his plein-aire, pastel landscape painting.

Lorenzo Chavez won the Dianne B. Bernhard Silver Medal Award for Excellence at the Third Annual Pastel 100 Competition.

Biography from Pitzer's Fine Arts:
Lorenzo Chavez was born in New Mexico, where the striking landscapes, varied cultures and colorful history helped him develop an appreciation for art at an early age. He studied at the Colorado Institute of Art and the Art Students League of Denver. Intensive private study of the Impressionists and 19th century American and Russian Impressionist- Realist painters especially the Taos Society Artists have made him aware of the wonderful possibilities and importance of painting from life.

Russell Museum, Laguna Art Museum, Gilcrease Museum, Landscapes of the American West, Plein Air Painters of America, Loveland Art Museum, Pasadena Art Museum, Butler Art Museum, Denver Art Museum, Albuquerque Museum, Bradford Brinton Memorial Museum and Artists of the West- Colorado Springs Fine Art Museum.

Lorenzo was invited to exhibit with six other American pastel painters at the 2013 fall Exhibition of the Pastel Society of Spain and is a quest artist in the Summer Exhibition of the Plein Air Painters of America at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wisconsin and the Maynard Dixon Country Exhibition August 2013. Lorenzo exhibited seven Pastels at the Summer Exhibition for the Society of Pastelists in France and exhibited three pastels in Spain in 2011 for the Pastel Society of Spain.

Lorenzo’s work is featured in many prominent magazines, including Art of the West, Southwest Art, Cover art for Pastel Journal, Art-Talk, and American Artist. He was cover artist for The Artist’s Magazine.
