Evans Flammond, Sr. is an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux/Lakota Reservation of South Dakota. He was introduced to Northern Plains Indian art at age seven. As his creativity and talent were being revealed in imaginative drawings, Evans’ uncle, a Santee Sioux mural painter himself, encouraged this emerging artist to turn his drawings into paintings.
His love for art, and all it has to offer, has grown and advanced with him throughout the years, bringing Flammond’s artistic style and recreation to where it is today. This Lakota Sioux artist has risen to painting on canvas and hides, sculpting and painting traditional and contemporary styles of American Indian weaponry and dance sticks, as well as skillful beading in Northern Plains Indian style. Each piece is created with thoughtful patience, authenticity and pride, integrating ancestral legend, symbolism and history for all to enjoy.
