2008: 50 Works for 50 Years

Dwayne Wilcox


Dwayne Wilcox (b. 1975) was raised on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and currently resides in Rapid City, South Dakota. He has been drawing since high school. Wilcox is a self-taught artist who has received guidance from other artists. He admits that it is hard to consider him “self-taught” when he has learned so much from others and continues to learn every day. Wilcox’s “ledger-style” drawings and paintings reflect a contemporary way of life—often depicting pow-wows, people preparing for dances, families spending time together and everyday scenes. This drawing is an example of the good humor and skill for caricature that Wilcox brings to his contemporary interpretation of traditional ledger art.
