Cheif Joseph




This digital piece was inspired by my previous post on Saga Sigurðardóttir and Hildur Yeoman [here]. When I saw their art I immediately knew I wanted to experiment with this painting style on vintage Native American portraits. I would love do a series in this style with the portraits printed on wood. I think the combination of the natural wood, modern digital print, and colorful spontaneous paint would be absolutely epic. Being from Native American ancestry, I've always found the culture inspiring and beautiful. I also semi-recently photo-shoot that really captures the Native American spirit, make sure to check out the shots! [here]
