N.A. Low Brow

posted on June 6, 2012

Chris Pappan is an American Indian artist of Osage, Kaw, Cheyenne River Sioux, and mixed European heritage. He prefers the term Indian over Native American, but uses both. His art reflects the dominant culture’s distorted perceptions of Native peoples while proclaiming that “we are still¬†here!” A graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, and a nationally recognized painter, Chris calls his art “Native

American Low Brow.” Chris exhibits in several Native American art shows and markets nationally including the Santa Fe Indian Market, the Heard Indian Fair and Market, and the Eiteljorg. Chris currently resides in Chicago with his wife Debra Yepa-Pappan and their daughter.¬† Check out more of his work: www.chrispappan.com
