Yellow Dancer

yellow dancer24″ x 30″, Mixed media on canvas, 2015


This was a photo I came across that I really liked. So I cut it up into pieces drew some parts and put it back together again. Just like a puzzle. The dancers name is Kevin Haywahe, I never actually met him but I did see him dance here at our pow wow on Birdtail Sioux a couple of years ago. He seems to be a very popular fella, since I created this piece a lot of people knew who he was. It was to great of a picture to not turn into an artwork. I may do another of this portrait but in different colors. – Riel Benn
