Percy Tsisete Sandy (1918-1974) Kai-Sa (Red Moon)+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Kai-Sa (Red Moon) was born at Zuni Pueblo in 1918. He later moved from Zuni to Taos, due to internal conflicts connected to his depiction of sensitive religious subjects. He died in Taos in 1974.
Kai-Sa attended elementary and secondary schools of the village of Zuni, then went on the Santa Fe to take a year’s postgraduate work in art at the Indian School. Kai-Sa was surely influenced while at the Indian School in Santa Fe, wither by artists he met there or by paintings he saw there.
Navajo (Diné) influence is seen in some of his paintings, influence of Taos artistPop Chalee is evident in at least one of his paintings. He has used Hopi and Rio Grande Puebloan styles as well as Navajo (Diné) and Apache.
