War Paint

War Paint

April 29, 2017 - May 29, 2017

War Paint is a collection of portraits and figurative paintings that reinterprets historic Native American imagery through stylized freehand manipulation. LeBrun illustrates the unique aesthetic details of the handcrafted garments of various indigenous tribes through the heavy use of line, deliberate brush strokes, and a bold primary color palette. The subject matter is associated with life and death, as well as artifact studies and animated still life.

War Paint is a tribute to American Indians, Native American culture, and indigenous American ideology. LeBrun, who is part Iroquois, salutes their historic example and continued respect for the Earth and all things natural. Growing up in the United States, he had little education about the severe atrocities suffered by the original occupants of the land he calls home. Thus the pride that accompanies his citizenship is offset by a sense of shame in the knowledge that his country was stolen and claimed by foreigners. Even today, the heritage and rights of American Indians are exploited, as exampled by Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and their peaceful protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Micah LeBrun

Micah LeBrun is a self-taught San Francisco artist who considers his understanding of art to be derived from what he visually identifies in everyday life. His influences range from the line-oriented work of Picasso, the bold graphic nature of Warhol, and the dominant colorful brushstrokes of Peter Max to modern-day movements such as car culture and graffiti. A self-prescribed wanderer in regards to creative process, he believes that each idea should be executed in the medium and style that best relays its intention.
