Biography   John Nieto


John Nieto calls himself an American artist who paints Indians, not an Indian artist.  An acclaimed leader of his field, but taking a separate path to represent Native Americans in striking symbolic portraits, Nieto is exhibited worldwide and has had paintings accepted for the Presidential library.

He does not attempt to be authentic, but to show a core Native spirit.  His Indians seem to belong to a universal tribe that suggest a common, Far Eastern origin, and connection with a contemporary group.
