About the Artist
(Born 1971) "Chris Pappan is an American Indian artist of Osage, Kaw, Cheyenne River Sioux and mixed European heritage. His art confronts the dominant culture’s distorted perceptions of Native peoples whilst proclaiming that “we are still here!” Currently his artwork is based on American Indian ledger drawings of the mid to late 19th Century while giving them a 21st Century twist.
Chris Pappan is the winner of the prestigious Discovery Fellowship from the Southwestern Association of Indian Artists (SWAIA) in 2011 and the Heard Museum’s Best of Class (Paintings, Drawings, etc.) and Best of Division (drawing) at the 52nd Annual Indian Market 2010. Chris’ work is in the collections of the Spencer Museum of Art, Kansas, Mitchell Museum of the American Indian, Illinois, The Schingoethe Center for Native Studies in Aurora, Illinois and private collections around the world. He is currently working on a major project for The Field Museum in Chicago." taken from the Rainmaker Gallery based in the UK
