In the remote landscapes of Northeastern Arizona, international and local artists alike have come together for an ambitious endeavor dubbed, “The Painted Desert Project”. Organized by AZ-based Jetsonorama and Yote, it aims to put the spotlight on a region and people too often overlooked and misunderstood. By painting murals on food stands and dilapidated structures around the reservation, the farthest of which span 125 miles, they hope the millions of tourists visiting the Grand Canyon each year will be encouraged to stop and enjoy what Navajo culture has to offer. Artists involved in the project include Jetsonorama, Yote, Thomas “Breeze”, Tom Greyeyes, Overunder, Doodles, Gaia and Labrona.

“Flowers for Frederick” ~ Yote

Friday, July 13th, 2012

From Yote‘s flickr:

Frederick Brown recently passed away and I wanted to dedicate this mural to him. It is entitled “Flowers for Frederick.” He was best known for his portraits of jazz singers and musicians. I talked to him on the phone this spring in hopes to get advice on how to loosen up my style and not be such a perfectionist from a real expressionist. He was too sick to talk for long but I do know he used to instruct students to complete two dozen paintings in a week and things like that to get them out of their head and into painting.
