The soft delicate presence of nature collides with the daunting colors of urban graffiti in Dion Terry’s art. His first series of paintings juxtaposed all types of wildlife and “wild-style” graffiti. Dion, who is from Fort Defiance, AZ, located in the Navajo Nation, began shifting his focus to birds. The artist depicts with great detail and precision the bird’s natural anatomical characteristics. However, Dion puts his own twist on his birds by clothing them in hats, robes, pants, and various other garments. This infuses his aviary subjects with their own personalities, reminiscent of humans. At times, his aviary subjects take on almost god-like qualities.
