Martin (Navajo)Late afternoon, in a downtown Phoenix neighborhood where many might fear to tread-save fearless artists and journalists-Steven Yazzie begins his day. Just arisen and in need of a Starbucks fix, the tattooed, friendly painter conducts a meandering tour of the studio where he has produced a majority of his work in his five-year career as a professional artist. Currently, Yazzie is one of nine Phoenix artists working at The House Studios, a funky, historic house renovated to accommodate the creative juices of its residents, a steady flow of visitors and Grace, the guard dog.Just 30 years old, Yazzie's upbringing mirrors the vibrant and edge-driven imagery he puts to canvas. The Gulf War veteran, some-time percussionist and full-time painter is a study of precariously balanced extremes. Born to a Navajo father, now deceased, and an Anglo mother (a former mechanic and music teacher/artist respectively), Yazzie spent his early childhood in the rural community of Page, Arizona, and teenage years in Phoenix.The eldest of four brothers, his point of reference draws from a close-knit family rich in musical and artistic ability, and at times, rebels from a very strict Christian upbringing. Dedicated to producing truthful paintings, Yazzie's statements continue to lean toward music and the arts-finding many levels of inspiration from painters Odd Nerstrom (Sweden) and Eric Fischl (United States)-to the classical compositions and punk rages of Chopin, Schubert, Everclear and The Damned.Prior to entering the fold of the professional art market, he juggled painting with brief positions as a bike courier in major art cities like Portland, San Francisco and New Orleans. For Yazzie, each city expressed fresh art energy and hustle, yet he returned to Phoenix, where he's now part of a flourishing art scene, and thrives on the good work ethics and clubhouse feel of his studio peers.Left to right: Rabbit Seals Indoctrination, 84 x 60 , oil on canvas; This Little Light of Mine, 16 x 16 , oil on canvasPrimarily self-taught, Yazzie has been painting steadily since 1997 and has made a name for himself from the work that he produces for the Art One Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona. The nature of his work-primarily oil-on-canvas-explores obscure themes that are both disturbing and humorous. Having produced only a small number of Native-themed titles, Yazzie asserts that he's an artist that happens to be Native American, and that, given his attunement for urban dwelling, his work, appropriately enough, contains no feathers and horses. Rather, Yazzie considers his token image to be the rabbit. Prior to the massive undertaking of the Heard mural, Fear of a Red Planet, he produced figurative renderings of rabbits, chickens and roosters, whose postured antics stretch the limits of most imaginations. I'm drawn to imagery that's fun to look at, that's funny to me, or that cracks me up, he says. Pulling from childhood imagery, his personal life and the world at large, he unites the cute and fuzzy with the good, bad and ugly of human expression.One example, Asshole, is a portrait from his Cowboy series that pokes fun at the Scottsdale art scene, and is in response to the red-neck mentality he witnessed growing up. Another series, Red Red Meat, explores beachside antics and Americana, and is his response to a similar series of figurative paintings created by Eric Fischl.According to a survey conducted in 2000 by the U.S.Home Articles Reviews Gallery Image Library Forums SearchLogin 600 CanvasNatalie SchaferPorto & Sherry Sandeman, 1931Georges Massiot24 in. x 32 in.Buy this Vintage Advertising PosterSITTING DUCKS, GAME BOY ADVANCE 2004 by Santa Monica Mirror.
