Steven Paul Judd, Kiowa/Choctaw, is known primarily as a filmmaker; with writing partner Tvli Jacob he penned and/or directed American Indian Graffiti: This Thing Life (2003), Search for the World’s Best Indian Taco (2010), and Shouting Secrets (2011). Yet he is also a prolific visual artist whose mashups of Native experiences and disposable American pop culture are sly and often downright funny. His creations include paintings, prints, poster art, photography, and t-shirt designs.
“This is my take on the Mad Men logo—decolonize TV,” Judd says. He made the original in Photoshop and produced a version (24″ x 36″) in acrylic on canvas, which he sold—”to pay for my booth at Indian Market Santa Fe, ha ha.” Prints (12″ x 18″ on 100# cardstock) are available at his Etsy store.
