Description
Tony Abeyta (1965- ) Navajo Nation
Educated at Santa Fe's Institute of American Indian Art, the Maryland Institute's College of Art in Baltimore, and then overseas in Southern France and Florence, Italy, Tony Abeyta, a graduate of the Maryland Institute, returned to school taking postgraduate classes in art and filmmaking at the Chicago Art Institute on a Ford Foundation scholarship. Abeyta works with vast fields of color and texture one might find in Indian crosses, early Navajo (Din�©) blanket designs, as well as prehistoric sensibilities of Indian design and earth toned color. Abeyta's work has predominantly focused on Native American deities such as the Navajo (Din�©) Yei-be-chai and Pueblo Kachinas. He shows the importance of these images in Native American religion and culture without literally depicting them.
