OLIN NEL­SON (DINÉ/LA­GUNA)

Native American Art - - YOUTH -

Olin Nel­son’s in­ter­est in art be­gan when he was just 1 year old, ob­serv­ing his father, Jonathan, draw­ing in the home of­fice and paint­ing in the garage, and in 2014 at the age of three, his work was first shown at In­dian Mar­ket. Fast for­ward to present day, Olin, 7, has be­gun cre­at­ing short sto­ry­books and story pic­tures com­bin­ing his imag­i­na­tion and art­work. “My art is about cats and Minecraft and also di­nosaurs,” says Olin. Us­ing medi­ums like col­ored pen­cils, mark­ers, acrylics and crayons, you may also glimpse a few Star Wars char­ac­ters in his work.
