Here's a fun new twist on Gchachu's signature motif: the Zuni hummingbird symbols are dripping with golden honey! Artist Gchachu added a few honey bees to the piece for a playful take that is pure nature yet has an urban sensibility from the way the drips look almost grafitti-like. This one is a quirky version of his typical style, which makes it more whimsical. The gold paint on the gorgeous lilac silk is stunning, and the deep royal purple of the lining adds a sumptuous accent color at the collar and cuffs.
Imagine "Three Golden Bees" over a column of deep purple with gold jewelry...wow!
“I am a 23 year old Native American artist from Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico. I started painting when I was about 5 years old and am mostly self-taught. I have entered many art shows and won awards for my artistic ability.”
“My passion is painting, but I also draw, sculpt, weave, and make pottery. This is what makes me unique, having the skill to do various mediums well. I love to paint because I love the feeling of making people happy through the images I create.”
The style of painting I do uses traditional Zuni symbols and I also like to do still life compositions. Most of my paintings are of Zuni proverbs and stories that I grew up with. The medium I paint in is acrylic and oil. I paint these stories to spread awareness about Zuni culture, and to inspire people to chase their dreams.”
