Neikame: Premier Very Fine Huichol Yarn Painting – Direct From Mexico
$1,050.00 - Collector Price
Superior yarn painting by Neikame. For years most Huichol were content to follow the footsteps of their ancestors doing the same yarn painting over and over again. Neikame has almost single handedly changed the direction of Huichol art with his surreal interpretations of his cultures’ traditions and myths.
His special diamond pattern fill adds real depth to his work. Neikame is an exceptional artist from Guadalupe Ocotan, in municipality of La Yesca, Nayarit. A teacher by trade, he did a stint in the Mexican Army and after almost losing his culture went back into the Sierra to study with his grandfather who has taught him the way of the elders. Today Neikame believes his art is a reflection of how the Huichol feel in the new world order. His surreal style is undoubtedly revolutionizing how people will look that traditional Huichol art. Price includes shipping to the continental United States usually takes 2-3 weeks. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
