    Princess Latte
    [pen on birch]


    v 15 x h 5 cm Ron Solanas' sense of humour and wry social commentary show up clearly in this very small piece of birch bark pasted on thick stationery paper folded so you can open it and write a message and slip it into a small envelope to send it on to friends who are bound to be amused and impressed at your connections to such innovative Indian art. Ron combines traditional drawing styles with a Very Vancouver Indian Princess sipping a latte while using her iPod --a part of Vancouver life, no matter what your culture or social life style. The artists from the Edge often trade a work of art for a latte, something that Indian Art from the Edge has as one of its main goals the making of it unnecessary for the artists to be on the losing end of a street-based art transaction. Fair dealings and good sales will make it possible to walk into the local latte cafe and have a grande grande, from cash in pocket, not relying on an instant sale on the street at deflated prices.
