Steve Forbis

Price: $2200.00

Steve Forbis (AM 1950 - ) Pueblo Treasure Color lithograph, ed. 100, 15 x 15, signed in pencil. This piece is in excellent condition. A vivid, clear and colorful image.

Steve Forbis is unquestionably the finest colored pencil artist working with emphasis on Native Americans. His drawings are multi-layered and highly labor intensive resulting in an almost unbelievable level of realism. The works are color pencil "paintings" in that they are color and value crafted rather than linear drawings. Forbis is a truly unique artist and craftsman. Forbis was academically trained as an anthropologist, not and artist. His art is self-taught. Before he starts any work, he spends extended time learning what feelings that person hopes to have expressed.
