"I have worked with various types of mediums; including acrylic, ink, and charcoal. I have even done some things with ceramics such as sculpting pinch pots out of red clay. I was born on the Fort Apache reservation located in Whiteriver, Arizona. So, I seek to display the perspective of Native culture that rarely gets reflected in our American society to spread awareness and inject Native Americans into the discussions about society and our policies. I pretty much have been drawing my whole life, mostly with pen and pencil. But, as of recently, I have found my voice and style through exploring and familiarizing myself with the world of graffiti and other forms of street art. Now, I only work with spray paint. Some of my biggest influences are Andy Warhol, Ai Wei Wei, and of course Banksy. I do not posses much formal art education, however, I do share similar motivations that I can identify with in these artists' work. At some point, I no longer made art just for the sake of making it. Plenty of artists can draw, but not everyone has something to say. I felt that the meaning needed to be established with a purpose. If art is to be a reflection of life then it should have meaning beyond what the eye see's" (Nez 2013).
