Taíno Artist Donates Images to Confederation

UCTP Taíno News – Taíno artist Joe “Doc Sunshine” Leon has donated the use of a series of art works to the United Confederation of Taino People to assist fund raising efforts. The series is focused on the theme ‘Proud to be Taino”. Leon feels strongly that his life has been enriched by his indigenous cultural experiences and that “he must return this gift”.

The artist did his studies at New York University, the School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League. Leon has since pursued a career as an award winning commercial artist for over 30 years.

The Confederation is now promoting the series via its online store at www.cafepress.com/tainoshop. The works will also be available at local festivals and events.
