"Indian Ink"

A write up on this Friday's opening in Santa Fe New Mexico.

"The Native American Art Movement has existed for centuries. The 21st Century movement has manifested the "by any means necessary" work of the following: Micah Werewulf Wesley, Yatika Starr Fields, Thomas "Brez" Marcus, Rose Simpson, Douglas Miles and introducing, Rebekah Miles. Each artist brings the sound, feel and look of a myriad of influences. All are well versed in styles based on (the) street art(s). Work in " Indian Ink " will focus primarily on black and white drawings and designs from these innovative artists. Strong designs, bold graphics, and a monchromatic mash- up of artistic movement dominate their work. In collaboration with famed master printer, Jose Malpuche at Self Help Graphics (East LA), these artists will create a portfolio of signed/numbered limited edition silkscreen works at Self Help Graphics which will become part of a legacy of art " for the people by the people" long championed by Chicano Art's very own resilient and legendary, Self Help Graphics. SHG is an art organization indigenous to the people of East Los Angeles. Not to mention, Self Help Graphics was ground zero for the Chicano Art Movement and explosion. This show will also feature the Volcom Stone Age x Apache Skateboards collaboration. A line of clothing and accessories inspired by the work of Apache Skateboards artist/creator, Douglas Miles in complete close collaboration with Volcom Stone Age. Original designs, ink drawings and Volcom Stone Age products will be featured."
