Influenced by his heritage, this hand carved and painted armadillo sculpture is signed and dated by Gregory. Colors vary! The pictured armadillo is an example image.
Gregory Lomayesva is a recognized painter, sculptor and mixed-media artist known throughout the world. Drawing from his Hopi and Hispanic heritage, he developed an aesthetic that uses both abstract imagery and traditional symbols. When he combined his woodworking skills with his painting skills his sculptures captured a large audience of collectors.
Gregory currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I am a big fan of Gregory Lomayesva’s work. I like the creativity, bright colors, and cultural mix reflected in his creations. This is the third Lomayesva sculpture I have purchased, and I am enjoying it very much.
Thank you. We are big fans as well. More of his work can be found at both the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and New Mexico History Museum gift shops.
