Thomas Greyeyes 2013

Thomas Greyeyes is an interdisciplinary artist from the Navajo Nation and was raised throughout the state of Arizona. For his undergraduate degree he majored in Intermedia from Arizona State University and graduated in fall of 2011. The culture clashes that native peoples have experienced are the sources that drive the artwork. Using site-specific graffiti installations, print and video art to convey anti authoritarian messages to the dominant society. Thomas honed his artistic practice to include political messages coming from the Indigenous perspective on colonialism, decolonization and protest. The work challenges Western ideas of what it means to be a human being and the stereotypical ideas of Native peoples in America.
