Spencer Keeton Cunningham’s native American Indian themed street art

Spencer Keeton Cunningham is a talented guy. I’m not sure if it’s his illustrations, murals or photography I like the best. Playing with the overly romanticized notion of North American Indian culture as a series of icons, sketches or markers, Cunningham is able to speak to the viewer through short, graphic strokes that hit hard.

He’s interested in presenting his own take on the demonization of tribal people in American culture and this poignant, painful subject matter makes his work difficult to forget. Being a quarter Colville from the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Cunningham is able to make assertions with his work that relates to his unique position and perspective in this world.

As he says: ‘how does one deal with personal identity and a constant battle of being a part of two clashing ancestries’. I think the answer may be by drawing these amazing images.

About the author

A love of traveling, art, and denim saw this Brit native mix them all up. The result was art crafted from denim and a new home in Sweden. Even though he once lived in Australia and never rode a wave, Denimu is only slightly better with a keyboard and likes to write about the things he has seen on his travels and the people he meets along the way.
