New Hyperallergic article about ‘Watori’, by Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe, written by Lauren Moya.

“Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe’s drawings condense nature into a graceful, powerful essence. Hakihiiwe is an Indigenous Venezuelan artist who lives in Alto Orinoco. The subject of his drawings on handmade paper is the Amazon jungle where he lives, and its intricate and endangered ecosystem. Plants, insects, and other natural and supernatural phenomena appear in the artist’s succinct but sensitive works, which also pull from the visual traditions of the Yanomami people. With assured lines and a steady hand, Hakihiiwe draws from his community and his surroundings with piercing clarity.”
