Jason Garcia is a Tewa artist that blends pop culture and comic book heroes with traditional Native American art. Jason Garcia’s parents were both very known potters.

Garcia works as an illustrator and also as a sculptor. The artist has created some very interesting paintings on ceramic tile.

The artist is part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, and the National Museum of American History both located in Washington D.C.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

In this clip a brief documentary on the artist:

My favorite works of the artist are his vessels which contain comic book references. These works are a great blend of traditional Pop culture and traditional Native American stories and religious icons. The artist sometimes references popular video games.

Its also interesting that Garcia took what his parents liked to do, create pots and vessels, and has added to it with his superb draftsmanship and painting skills.
