Monty Little (Diné )

About the Artist

Monty Little is Diné from Tuba City, Arizona. Little graduated from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Creative Writing and Studio Arts in 2015. It was here that he began to feel the urge to translate his thoughts on his experience of war and post-war. Little wrote extensively on his encounters of conflict and commenced an unfolding of his deployments. Much of his writing initiated surreal images; thus, wanting to visually relay those images, Little began to paint and print what he wrote, using each medium as erasure, where unsettling truths reveal personal components and texture is integral, yet disruptive to find his past chaotic. Little currently resides and works in Tulsa, Oklahoma with his family.
