Welcome to Peyote People.

This is an extraordinary Yarn, Beads & painting that measures 40" x 40". For years most Huichol have been content to follow the footsteps of their ancestors doing the same yarn painting over and over again until one artist named Neikame came along.
Neikame has almost single handedly changed the direction that Huichol art is going with his mixed media pieces that are made up of yarn, beads and acrylic paint that add real depth to his work.

Neikame is an exceptional artist from Guadalupe Ocotan, in municipality of La Yesca, Nayarit. A teacher by trade, he did a stint in the Mexican Army and after almost loosing his culture went back into the Sierra to study with his grandfather who has taught him the way of the elders. Today Neikame believes his art is a reflection of how the Huichol feel in the new world order. His surreal style is undoubtedly taking Huichol art in a whole new direction.
