Frank Big Bear
The Frank Big Bear show at Lighthouse Arts Space in Minneapolis is a rich collection of paintings, prints, and drawings by the Minnesota native. Big Bear was born in 1953 and spent his early years in Detroit Lakes near the White Earth Reservation.
He later moved to Minneapolis where he lived until his death last year. Before becoming a painter, Big Bear was a taxi driver in Minneapolis for over 30 years. In his early works, Big Bear focused on themes that included personal identity, cultural heritage, and political issues. His later works, however, shifted to focus on themes of social and political issues. In recent years, Big Bear has taken his interest in postmodern irony and American Indian spirituality and has turned his paintings into an installation to reflect this.
