Navajo artist Craig George is one of those artists whose work, in our humble opinion, people will regret not collecting earlier. He grew up in Los Angeles and a few years ago began to re-establish roots on the Navajo Reservation, not far from Blue Gap, Arizona. He works exclusively in oil. In addition to amazing landscapes and the occasional abstract or collage, he paints scenes based on what he saw and experienced growing up in Los Angles – home to the largest off-reservation Indian population in the country. The tags, the wall signs, the graffiti -all of it- is based upon actual places and scenes.
Craig George’s incredible work is this year’s LA SKINS FEST theme. Great thanks to Craig!
