Santa Fe, New Mexico
Gregory Lomayesva is an internationally recognized painter, sculptor and mixed media artist who lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Son of Marie Romero Cash, a celebrated folk artist and writer, he draws from his artistic roots and Hopi heritage to create unique sculptures and paintings at the cutting edge of contemporary American folk art. Greg's folk art styled wood objects draw from a complete assimilation of many aspects of life and fantasy combined. The Kachina styled figures are representative of his Hopi roots but not representative of actual Kachina figures. The feathers used are molted parrot feathers that add rich coloration to each work. Cars, motorcycles, scooters and wagons with wild whimsical riders make Greg's pieces truly fun with a wonderful folk art flare.
