Terran Last Gun (b. 1989) is a Piikani (Blackfeet) citizen and printmaker, who works mainly with serigraphy to produce fine original prints. Other mediums he has used include painting and photography. The interplay between color and form have been a focus of Last Gun’s artistic practice. He often draws from Piikani geometric aesthetics and collective narratives that deepen and extend his color and exploration of shape.
Born in Browning, Montana, Last Gun received his A.S. degree from the Blackfeet Community College in 2011, and his BFA in Museum Studies and AFA in Studio Arts from the Institute of American Indian Arts in 2016. He is a recipient of awards from the First Peoples Fund, 2020 Artist in Business Leadership Fellowship; Santa Fe Art Institute, 2018 Story Maps Fellowship; and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, 2016 Goodman Aspiring Artist Fellowship. He currently lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
