Biography

Jack Malotte, Fine Artist, Printmaker, and Screenprinter

Jack Malotte, a Shoshone and Washoe artist and member of the South Fork Band of the Te-Moak Tribe
of Western Shoshone Indians, grew up on the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony. Malotte is a graduate of
the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California. As a graphic artist and illustrator
his thematically political theme conveys contemporary Indigenous issues. He uses drawing, painting,
and printmaking to convey his feelings about the "Indian connection with the earth and sky and how this
connection manifests spiritually, physically, and politically." He is best known for his satirical depictions
of traditional Indians in a modern world, but the majority of his work depicts the arid Great Basin
landscape of his ancestors. His work is exhibited widely across the nation and offers a timely reminder
of the importance of the natural world and how tenuous is its protection.
