About the author:
Asante Riverwind is a life-long creator of fine art, blending a range of art traditions and cultures. Many of his works fuse Celtic and original designs with wild nature, dreams, visions, and spirit.
Born in early 1953, in the "Year of the Water Dragon," this fiery artist was taught and encouraged by his artistic mother as soon as he could hold a pencil. Ten years of formal study at five universities were completed at Cornish Art Institute in Seattle, Washington, in 1980. His art has exhibited extensively, been featured worldwide, and included in a number of published books. "Canini" is the second book in his "All My Relations" series. "Raven", a compilation of raven inspired art and poetry, is the first book in this series and was published in 2011, also available through amazon.com.
Asante is a multi-decade activist on both social and ecological issues, co-founding a number of organizations and community groups since beginning as a teenager in 1968. Most recently he founded a new arts and ecology resource, Gaia Ki. "Gaia" symbolizing the living Earth, "Ki" the flow of life energy, restoring balance and harmony. Asante is also a musician, writer, and poet. "Art and Evolution" is the name he uses for this amalgamation of activism and art.
An ardent explorer of nature's wild wonders and spirit's limitless dimensions, Asante's art blends inspiration from wildland adventures, dreams and visions, creating images infused with life's magic. In this "interesting times" era, his art illuminates places of harmony, compassion, healing change and the inherent connection of all beings beyond time.
Asante lived for over 16 years in tipi's, a yurt, an earth lodge, and a strawbale home - from an island in Puget Sound, to the forests of the Cascades and Blue Mountains, and Arizona's Sonoran desert-part of a commitment to ecological and simple living. He has three grown sons, and a number of grandchildren, who help inspire his efforts. Asante and his wife Sylvia currently reside in Sarasota Florida, helping care for his elderly father while creating art and exploring the region's lush jungle-woodlands, savannas, rivers, swamps, and gulf coast waters.
In addition to original and commissioned art, Asante offers a range of quality art prints, giclees, cards, books, & organic t-shirts. He may be contacted at: Asante Riverwind Arts, PO Box 22233, Sarasota, FL 34276. www.asanteriverwindarts.com
