Randy L Barton (Diné) is a multi-disciplined, contemporary artist, designer, dancer, DJ, and music producer from Winslow, AZ best known for his visionary abstract paintings, live painting performances, and innovative style. The foundation of his creations derives from the unique combination of his background in hip hop, graffiti art, and the traditional Navajo teachings and ceremonies that began shaping his life at an early age.
Randy began focusing on art as a profession in 2001 after receiving a degree in graphic design and began painting professionally in 2007. He showcases the beauty way, protection way, and hip hop undertones in all of his work and is inspired by colors and hues of heightened states of awareness. He transforms acrylic and aerosol paint into stimulating abstract landscapes of time travel, rainbow walking, prayer, reflection, and soul remembrance manifested from the spirit realm. Each brush stroke is a prayer and moving meditation of creation from spirit to canvas. His intention is to uplift one’s spirit to new dimensions of spirituality utilizing Neo-contemporary native arts as the vehicle to promote healing and consciousness.
His work is included in the Autry Museum of the American West in Los Angeles; the Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock, AZ; the Albuquerque International Sunport; the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History; the Nativo Lodge in Albuquerque, NM; and the Eldorado Hotel in Santa Fe, NM as well as in many private collections.
