Wow, the black painted designs on the parchment colored tuxedo silk of this brand new jacket is a knock out combination! Gchachu has a great eye for detail and knows what works for art to wear and making a design than looks great from all angles. Here he starts his signature Zuni hummingbird motifs on the lower right sleeve and continues across the right and left front in an upward diagonal motion to finish on the upper left sleeve. It's a composition that gives a lovely uplifted movement to the piece.
The neutral black and gold on parchment color palette keeps the look quiet and dignified, making it a wonderful day wear piece, or day into evening look for the distinctive professional. Or dress "Golden Bird" down over jeans and a stretch white tee!

Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico
“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.”
