More about Blue Jacket

Blue Jacket is named for a Shawnee American Indian war chief, and was inspired by an Indian Relay racehorse, mashed up with graffiti, on a background inspired by American Indian weaving. The meaning of the paint colors and war paint symbols is:

  • Red symbolizes war, blood, strength, energy, and power.
  • Blue symbolizes wisdom and confidence.
  • Hoof prints indicate the number of horses captured in raids.
  • Lightning bolts ask for speed for the horse.
  • Hailstones are a prayer for hail to fall on the warrior’s enemy.
  • Bands across the nose indicate battles won.

Liz Chappie-Zoller is a contemporary artist whose paintings are a unique combination of working horses and graffiti, directly inspired by her rural Montana landscape. Emphasizing the strength and vitality of traditional rural ranch, rodeo, and Indian Relay racehorses mashed up with the colorful energy of urban graffiti artists, her art challenges our assumptions about diverse cultures as it explores their overlapping edges.
