The Fine Art of Greg Overton

"I often depict my subjects reflecting on a life of many contrasts. From the glory of the days of the free horse culture of the plains to the desolation of the reservation area.  They have lived a life of warriors and with a regal stoicism they look ahead to an uncertain future."

BIOGRAPHY
Greg Overton, b. 1970
Born in 1970, Greg Overton has been creating western art since he was very young. He began emulating the works of Russell and Remington at the age of eight. Overton has always had a deep fascination with the west; particularly American Indian Warriors, as they pertain directly to his family. Overton is related to an Iroquois Chief, and Medicine Man, Eagle Plume. His ancestor John Dodds was a founding member of Jamestown and was married to Eagle Plume’s daughter Jane. He is now in the process of an Eagle Plume series to commemorate his family’s personal history.   Overton’s professional career began at the age of 16 when he illustrated the first of many rock music album covers. His commercial career lasted throughout his 20’s; he did everything from theater back drops to computer illustrations for the federal government. He also did work for amusement parks, even one as far away as Hong Kong. Overton switched back to his days as a child to the western art he once practiced. Overton was soon featured as an "artist to watch" by Southwest Art Magazine in 2004. His work has been featured in Cowboys And Indians, Art Talk and Southwest Art. Now collectors of his work come from all over the country. Overton does extensive research for each painting to better understand his subjects and maintain proper authenticity. Overton attends powwows and American Indian ceremonies to fine tune his appreciation for Indian Culture, as well as studying tribal history and always searching for his next model. Overton’s paintings are based on historical figures such as Sitting Bull, Red Cloud and Geronimo. Combining both historical photographs with his modern American Indian models Overton is able to create these amazing portraits dedicated to the American Indian way of life. With all the friends Overton has made through his research, he as a deep understanding of the certain needs of these tribes. He now spends time doing charity work with various tribes, and donates the proceeds from at least one painting each year to an American Indian cause.

"Taking his power from the night and the crow. Night Crow is an enigmatic figure bearing the scars of many battles he is a formidable warrior with a mysterious aura. The Zigzag pattern on his war paint symbolizes Thunder and lightning. The spots represent hailstones. These are two of the most fearsome forces of nature on the high plains where the Lakota lived. The crow is the messenger from the spirit world and the ghost shirt represents a return to the old way of life and the Buffalo. The green fringe represents  the grass on the plains which feed the Buffalo. Integrated fully in the natural world Night Crow is one with his ancient way of life.
