David Dawangyumptewa’s colorful mixed media work is simultaneously grounded in tradition and achieves expressive contemporary abstraction.
The style and content of David’s work are reflective of his Hopi Background and Water Clan affiliation. His works are abstracted variations of traditional water symbols, frogs, dragonflies and turtles.
David was raised on the Hopi and Navajo Nations and has studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts, Haskell Institute in Kansas and Northern Arizona University. His works hang in numerous public and private galleries around the world.
This beautiful art work is protected with Museum Glass, an anti-reflection picture framing glass with conservation grade UV protection. With its nearly invisible finish, it effectively blocks up to 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light rays so framed pieces remain clearer and brighter for longer. It is the best glazing option available for art, photographs and other important personal keepsakes.
The matting on this picture is an acid free matte(s) for long term protection and to enhance the picture. Acid free mattes provide 75-100 years of protection against matte burn and brown marks which can decrease the value of a painting. The matting colors were selected to draw the eye into the picture complementing the artist’s selected brush work or towards a particular key element of the piece.
