28 postcards images hand bound. Nakamura is a third-generation Asian-American who wears his black hair long and calls Santa Fe, New Mexico home, Joel Nakamura is frequently stopped on the street by tourists and asked what pueblo he's from. When he answers with a straight face, "The Sukiyaki Pueblo," more often than not they don't get it. Instead, they politely ask him if they can take his picture. While at first blush this anecdote may seem humorously absurd, there could be something more to it than a case of mistaken cultural identity. Joel is an artist whose work draws heavily on the cultural and spiritual expressions of primitive tribes. His style is reminiscent of Aboriginal bark paintings and Maori tattoo designs. Indeed, a good case could be made that Joel Nakamura is the lone member of a Tribe of One. Ne-ot-e-ny: (3.) the retention of juvenile characteristics in the adults of a species.
