Steven J. Yazzie (b.1970) Newport Beach, California; lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona. Yazzie is a proud member of the Navajo Nation and a veteran of the Gulf War serving honorably with the United States Marine Corps. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Intermedia at Arizona State University and was named the 2014 outstanding graduate for the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. He also studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine.
“My work is the product of interdisciplinary projects and multidisciplinary activities including: painting, video installation, performance, and socially driven collaborations. My ancestry, Navajo (Diné), Laguna, and European, play a fundamental role in the postcolonial subtext embedded in the narratives of my work. I use specific geographies within the southwest region of the United States as points of reference in framing metaphors of cultural condition, specifically land as a source of identity, conflict, and explicit resource.”
