Derrick “Woody” Bitsie, born November 20, 1984 in Tohatchi, New Mexico lives and works in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He studied art at the Institute of American Art for a year. His work ranges from different mediums that include the traditional canvas, skateboard decks, traditional Navajo cradleboards, vinyl records, sign painting, and murals. Bitsie’s murals can be seen from downtown Albuquerque to Albuquerque’s south valley.
Bitsie states, “Art has always been a technical process for me. Art has never been about money but more for the joy of getting into a gallery and showing a part of yourself and seeing the evolution of your mark.”
Bitsie expresses that, “Midnight Train to Memphis” is a collection of work that I love to create. Portraits of musicians, Indians’s on vinyl, ratrods on canvas outlined in fluorescent pink, aerosol skateboard decks, tattoo images on cradleboards and religious images”.
