Neikame

Neikame is an exceptional artist from Guadalupe Ocotan, in the municipality of La Yesca, Nayarit. A teacher by trade, he did a stint in the Mexican Army and after almost losing his culture went back into the Sierra. After that, he studied with his grandfather who taught him the way of the elders. Today Neikame believes his art is a reflection of how the Huichol feel in the new world order. Thus, his surreal style is undoubtedly taking Huichol art in a whole new direction.

Neikame has almost single handedly changed the direction that Huichol art is going with his mixed media pieces. These are made up of yarn, beads and acrylic paint that add real depth to his work.
