Bryan’s Bio: Bryan Waytula (Oklahoma Cherokee Nation) is an active fine arts professional living in the Sand Springs, Oklahoma area. Following in the footsteps of his Mother & Grandmother, both of whom are Cherokee Treasures in the Art of Basketry, Bryan has created works enjoyed by patrons and professional athletes. Both his traditional & contemporary works are unique and stunning. He’s been translating a variety of artistic skills through numerous competitions, exhibitions and galleries. Drawing since the age of 5, Bryan continues to spend time furthering his techniques and style while teaching young artists as an Oklahoma Educator. His most recent style in the repetitive use of circles throughout his compositions & Native American subject matter have started to gain the interest of collectors and admirers in the Midwest.
