An Artist Perspective on his work.

From time to time, I've featured artists who have impressed me with their work. Fritz Scholder(1937-2005) is one of the most significant artist of our time. When he began painting Native Americans, he challenged tribal stereotypes and offered a post-modern interpretation of the American Indian experience. Scholder, himself part-Native, rejected the label of “Indian artist,” instead describing himself as “a non-Indian Indian.” If your interested in his thoughts on the subject, just click on the video link provided below.
