For the 61st Indian Fair & Market, we asked printmaker Jacob Meders to design an image for our t-shirts. Jacob is a member of the Mechoopda Indian Tribe of Chico Rancheria, California. He has a BFA in painting with a minor in printmaking from Savannah College of Art and Design and a MFA in printmaking at Arizona State University. In 2011 Jacob established WarBird Press, a fine art printmaking studio that he operates as the Master Printmaker in Phoenix, AZ. He is also an Assistant Professor in Interdisciplinary Arts & Performance at Arizona State University, Glendale, AZ.

Jacob has exhibited his work in numerous venues, including The Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, NM; the Corcoran, Washington DC; the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ; the Heard North Scottsdale Museum in Scottsdale, AZ and Mesa Contemporary Arts in Mesa, AZ. His work is collected by major universities and other institutions in the United States and internationally. Jacob has also gained recognition as a public speaker and has traveled nationally and internationally to speak on topics within the indigenous contemporary art world.

Jacob’s work focuses on altered perceptions of place, culture, and identity built on the assimilation and homogenization of indigenous peoples. This work reexamines varied documentations of Native Americans through printing processes that hold on to stereotypical ideas and how they have affected the culture of the native people. Using bookforms and prints as a symbol of western knowledge and the linear mind, Jacob deploys them as a vehicle to challenge new perceptions of Native Americans.
