About the Author
Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe (Sheroana, 1971) is an indigenous Yanomami artist who lives and works between Caracas and Platanal, Venezuela. Beginning in the 90’s, Hakihiiwe has been developing a visual language that traces and memorializes indigenous landscapes, cosmogony, and ancestral traditions.

Hakihiiwe’s works are conceived as an expression of knowledge passed through generations and as a foundation that unites the ancestral with the present. As he aims to recover the oral memory of his people, the contemporary works of Hakihiiwe disrupts the linear time framework by having motifs of the past and present coexist with imagined futures.  — Dejá Belardo, 2024  (Assistant Curator – Visual Arts and Civic Programs, The Shed)
