Yellowman  - Navajo, aka Bennie Nelson

Yellowman is a self-taught artist whose career spans over 50 years. Known as an award winning artist out of New Mexico, Yellowman is well versed in any medium but is most known for dynamic acrylics and intricate watercolors. Yellowman’s talent comes from his creative family, of who are extraordinary weavers and bead workers. At an early age he showed talent in drawing and painting, giving him a strong foundation for his future career. With this undying passion, his career has been full of award winning pieces in fine art shows worldwide.

       

Yellowman is not only a Master Artist but an avid public speaker concerning Native American Rights, traditions, history and art. His extraordinary ability to research and depict Native culture is represented in his everyday life. His work celebrates Native beauty and his ability to capture their fierceness and strength is uncanny. Never without a pencil and art tablet, Yellowman, sees a world that history books have long forgotten.      

             

Yellowman had an opportunity to participate in the Painted Pony project in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Yellowman’s painted Pony was auctioned off for $45,000 to First Preston in Addison, TX and all proceeds went to Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a single mom in Santa Fe, NM. Yellowman believes in giving back to the community and helping others in need. Donating to charities has always been a priority for him. He is a Native American whom has made a positive impact on the art world. Yellowman feels that it is his duty to be a positive role model and an ambassador of Native Americans.
