My longtime friend, Doze Green is showing his New Works at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in Chelsea this weekend. His work speaks for itself and opening night receptions are a big New York family affair. I know him so well (since I was a young peanut!) I can’t speak without gushing so I’m posting what the gallery cites about him below. Anyone game to come with me this Saturday?
Doze Green A New York City native, and often compared to Basquiat, his urban background and involvement in the early hip-hop/graffiti movement of NYC in the late 70’s, early 80’s as one of the original members of the Rock Steady Crew, led him to transition from creating art in the streets and subways into the gallery setting. The artist’s genealogy inspires many of the themes explored therein, influenced by ancient civilizations and indigenous cultures, including his own Afro-Caribbean roots.
