I will be away from the gallery from July 28th to August 27th.  The website is receiving orders as usual, and I should be able to respond to inquiries within a few days, but orders will not be shipped before August 28th.  

The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations.  I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.  Pleae note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

About the Artist

Shoyan Sheca
Shoyan Sheca

Shoyan Sheca is an artist of the Shipibo/Conibo people who live in the selva (jungle) of Peru.

I was born in the community of San Francisco.   When my grandfather died I came to Pucallpa. At school I liked math.  There I fell in love with Elena. After we got married I had to work as a kitchen helper in the day, and at night I went to school.  After I came to Lima I began to paint...
When I paint my animals I think as a kid.  I liked to follow my grandfather to seek mitayo (bush meat). I remember, when a herd of peccaries came and made me run and climb a tree. When I draw a flying heron, I love that. 
For me painting is a struggle. Lima also is a struggle. As I am a father of four children and I want my children, I have to struggle to study. Joblessness is very difficult, but now I feel more that I'm moving forward.
