Tony Abeyta
Tony Abeyta is considered one of the finest young contemporary painters today. Abeyta explores a variety of mediums including oil, charcoal, and sand. Because he experiments with techniques and images so much, his creativity transcends any label that may be used to identify his work. Abeyta was commissioned to create the signature image of the National Museum of the American Indians groundbreaking opening in Washington, DC. Many of Abeyta's highly original works are depictions of complex Navajo beliefs; they evoke the notion that there is power in everyone and everything. Avid collectors will consider their Abeyta piece to be a gift from a higher power. (Artist's Biography. 2010. Blue Rain Gallery. http://blueraingallery.com/artists/tony_abeyta/)
