This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A sculptor of cowboy rodeo figures, plains Indians, and wildlife as well as other images of the West, Chris Navarro had first-hand experience with his subject matter when he was a rodeo competitor at Casper College in Wyoming.  He has remained a resident of Casper but in 1999, opened a gallery in Taos, New Mexico.

Navarro was born into a military family, and during his childhood, they moved about every three years while his father climbed the army latter.  At age 16 in Spain, he began rodeo riding, and after high school returned to the United States and lived in Casper, where he attended Casper College.  His great love was rodeoing, but he honored his parent's wish they he attend college while pursuing this competition.  After college, he married and worked for an oil field pipe-inspection company, but left that job in 1989 to pursue his sculpting full time.

Of his work, he writes in his book, Chasing the Wind, 'The greatest gift a person has to offer the world is the work he creates and the effort he puts into it'.

One of his best known works is the Lane Frost Memorial, a fifteen-foot sculpture of a bull rider in Frontier Park in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  Many of his works are large scale including Spirit of the Thunderbird, a 15-foot high sculpture at Casper College and Twenty Chance of Flurries, also 15 feet in height, at Colorado State University in Fort Collins.
