Canadian and Native DJ crew "A Tribe Called Red" dropped their newest single today titled "Stadium Pow Wow". I was so excited to hang and attend ATCR's show in Brooklyn this past February, so you can imagine how hyped I was when the crew asked me to design the art work for Stadium Pow Wow.
My work is continually driven from my Navajo roots and this time was no different. I was really happy with how receptive these guys were to Navajo patterns, specifically the lightning rug pattern. ATCR's roots began in Canada with nightly events called "Electric Pow Wow". That electric feel resonates through their music and I wanted to depict that power and energy. This variation of a Navajo style lightning rug pattern became the result. I hope you enjoy and download the new track! Expect more collaborations with ATCR in the near future.
