Gregory Lomayesva

Gregory Lomayesva's career began the old fashioned way — with an idea and a pile of moxie. Dropping out of high school at the age of seventeen to pursue his art fulltime, he landed his first job as a gallery assistant at one of Santa Fe's prestigious showrooms. After a brief stint in Los Angeles where he continued to work for a local gallery, Lomayesva returned home at the age of twenty to begin his career. His cultural background now came into play. Of Hispanic ancestry on his mother's side and Native American -Hopi- on his father's side, Lomayesva began to reflect on his heritage and how it encircled him His introspection is evident in this fusion art. His woodworking pieces are bright and inventive and are a reflection of his own personal identification with and interpretation of his culture. "The use of a particular image in a composition is a visual representation of a different feeling I'm having. It's like emotional shorthand," says Gregory. He combines his love of historical western art themes and contemporary Indian art. Gregory has produced two albums of electronic pop music on his label Drip Records. He has also produced several short films. His invitation to exhibit in thirty countries, and repeat showings at the Smithsonian American Indian Museum and the Heard Museum make this artist worth watching.
