Unlike most artists, Nathan Solano did not begin his painting career until he turned 40, and then without any formal art training. He briefly attended the University of Colorado, was drafted and spent a year in Vietnam as an Infantry Sergeant. He has worked a variety of jobs, including in a steel mill, as a roofer, and as a waiter and bartender until he was hired as an illustrator for an advertising agency.
Nathan eventually worked in Colorado and Florida as an illustrator and art director for several ad agencies. In 1989 he moved back to Colorado and began painting. His work has been featured in the Artists Magazine, Art of the West, Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, Taos Magazine, Western Horseman, Cowboys & Indians and Wildlife Art Magazine.
