Cheyenne Randall is a contemporary fine artist who lives and works in Seattle, WA. Randall explores the identity of iconic individuals from yesterday and today, Blending traditional American tattoo culture with some of history’s most celebrated Pop Icons. His ‘Shopped Tattoo’ series calls to question the modern obsession with fame and glamor as well as the stigmas surrounding body modification in today’s societies. Using his mastery of photo manipulation, Randall immerses his viewers in a parallel universe. Whether it is surreal landscapes or Randall’s alternative take on familiar faces of Pop Culture, his imagery is widely recognized and celebrated. Using a new technique Randall pushes his images into the third dimension. Simulating movement in what would otherwise be still images, Randall’s works now dance with a life of their own.  Working on an ongoing body of work titled ‘Pasting The West’, Randall seeks out remote locations such as abandoned and forgotten buildings and transforms them with his iconic “shopped tattoo” icons. Inviting all who encounter these remote works to engage and relate to the familiarity of his subjects.  As an enrolled member of Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, he uses traditional Native American symbolism and imagery as reference to his heritage. Randall works to bridge the gap of misinformation and the lack of education of his people’s history and culture. He’s worked along side Shepard Fairey and the Doors with nonprofit Honor the Treaties to bring awareness to Native American issues through activism in art.
