Tony Tiger painted this piece in response to a request for a landscape painting. Tony’s description of the painting: “I was allowing myself to explore the concept of abstract imagery contemplating the historic relationship of land and the Native American – physical, mental and spiritual. The symbols represent my tribal heritage of the Seminole, Sac and Fox, and Muscogee Creek as the tribes overlap over time. In recent years I have had the opportunity to travel to the geographical regions of my ancestors. The colors represent my journey during this time and the influence of my outdoor excursions.” Tony is an accomplished artist, art educator, and art curator. In 2017, Tony won the grand prize at the Cherokee Heritage Center’s 46th annual Trail of Tears Art Show. He has served as the Director of Art and Assistant Professor of Art at Bacone College in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Tony has also curated numerous art exhibitions, including “Return from Exile” and “Altars of Reconciliation”, both of which have toured throughout the United States.
