Over the last year the Indigo Arts website has remained active despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume operations but must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  

Note:  USPS has been so slow that we recommend avoiding it entirely, at least for the present.  Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.
Please stay safe in these difficult times.  
We wish you all a healthier, saner and more civil 2021.

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.
