Contemporary Dineh artist
The Navajo culture and personal experience is the foundation of Yazzie’s work. Yazzie’s painting literally starts with a splash of paint sparked by an idea, the rest is completed with intuition and experimentation. Yazzie also carves what he has coined as “Yei wall sculptures”. These wall sculptures are carved, painted and adorned with natural exotic (legal) feathers. Demonstration and sale of his work will be at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture throughout Folk Art Market weekend.
