About Susana Santos:
The artwork of Native American Artist, Susana Santos (1954-2006) Tygh/Yakama was recently released to the market place. I have the honor to make available her original paintings, serigraphs, and fine art reproductions.
As a painter, sculptor, and writer, Susana Santos was dedicated to interpreting the rich legacy of Native people. She was also a tireless advocate for the rights of indigenous children and tribal fishing. Her artwork is a vibrant depiction of the Native world using rich colors to create dynamic landscapes and a deep narrative that illuminates historic and contemporary memories. From her signature hats to her inspiring giggle, Susana was a remarkable creator of beauty with an authentic vision.
Susana's serigraphs were hand-pulled and created on archival paper. Her original paintings are in excellent condition and have been carefully stored. Because of Susana's untimely passing, there is a limited amount of work available.
