Part of artist Scott Dykema's continuing series of Native American chiefs. "This is an incredible portrait that was completed over the period of two years," explains Scott. "The first chief who was in the painting could be considered as an influence and was a lot like a buffalo soldier. This figure comes across more as a mystic of sorts. The painting was made with a multitude of materials and is rich with color and texture."
Scott works out of a 1947 Chevrolet school bus that is parked permanently in his Texas backyard. His highly expressionistic, figurative work is reminiscent of contemporary street art, largely due to the inclusion of spray paint in his arsenal of media. Scott is inspired by images he comes across in books or in daily life. His bold statement pieces demonstrate artful yet fanciful interpretations of world cultures. Each painting, through its dynamic layers of color and metallics, presents a story that awaits the imaginative viewer.
