An enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, Paul High Horse is a painter and mixed media artist. Raised on the Pine Ridge Reservation, he attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communications and a Master of Education degree. He currently lives with his family in Fort Calhoun, Nebraska, where he works as a secondary school art teacher and artist.

Inspiration for Paul High Horse’s artwork comes from the symbols, traditions and values inherent in Lakota culture. Circles are a common visual element in his paintings. He uses a variety of media in his work including acrylics, archival inks and watercolors, executed on wood panels, canvas and paper.

Awards received for his work include Best Emerging Artist at the 2014 Gathering of People, Wind and Water, A Native art market and cultural celebration in Rapid City, and Best Two Person Show at the 2014 Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards.

Art will be available for purchase. Details are available by contacting the Journey Museum.
