Reverend Steven Johnson Leyba will perform the INVOCATION FOR THE NEW CREATIVE AEON & BROKEN HEART STORIES from his memoir WE ARE ALL INDIANS NOW with The Cat Sweet & Courtney Crimson.
New memoir by the celebrated infamous artist Reverend Steven Johnson Leyba
The guy who cursed the 49ers with the Apache Whiskey Rite and the reason they lost the super bowl Sunday…
Half Native American and full TERROR in this politically correct authoritarian time. Leyba is a “Sexpressionist’ Painter, Performance artist, author, and the most original and unconventional book maker.
Internationally known for being masterful yet controversial, Leyba is extreme, and makes no apologies for it. His mixed media canvases, containing evertyhing from oil paint, and traditional tribal beadwork, to his own blood and body fluids are as different an art to behold (and with his hand made books – art you can touch and hold), as they are thick in texture, color, and the statements of who he is.
Very graphic in their depiction of body parts, as in his portrait series, ‘SexGoblins’, and often politically charged, this ‘Tribal Trickster’ may be an acquired taste, but one who’ll never see imitated.
Leyba’s new memoir WE ARE ALL INDIANS NOW (Also same title of his 15th hand made book) explores his cultural critiques as well as his personal struggles in public and private, all aspects of his creative process, as well the pursuit of his and our personal liberties with his corporate battles and curses.
Memoir is hardback $50 release as well as a limited edition of 66 signed and numbered at $250 each with a unique self portrait.
Also his 3rd Project #9 is a spoken word release with composer Marly Preston “Prisons of The Disinformation Age” Human Future Records.
“We need Leyba! He of the unwavering penetrating eye of the truth. The man is truly heroic in his fearless exposure of corporate mind control and his absolute refusal to be hoodwinked into the all pervasive societal sugar coma trance state induced by the wielders of the great consumer spell. His writing (like his ‘PAINting’) is incisive, cutting, through all the BS with laser beam intensity and shining a fierce and blazing light into the dark covert corners to expose all that the corrupt hypocrites endeavor to keep from being seen. Coyote rising! HOWL” – David J., of Bahuas & Love and Rockets
