Portrait © Donna Granata 1998
Ojai ceramist Viq McCaslin is a Native American Yaqui Indian respected for his public art. His work, which encompasses historic and environmental themes, is explored primarily through ceramic tile. McCaslin’s installations are widely displayed in private estates, shopping malls, Los Angeles MetroLink stations and galleries. Described as “psychologically environmental,” his art often transports the viewer from an urban environment to natural surroundings. McCaslin’s tribal ancestry, symbolism and philosophy of living in harmony with nature are all issues that inspire his work.
Viq McCaslin’s documentation took place in 1998. The FOTM Archive contains extensive information about this artist.
