Doze Green will be part of the upcoming Graffuturism group show L’Avenir opening at White Walls December 14, 7-11 pm. Inspired by his Afro-Caribbean origins, the Japanese Edo Period and Cubism, Doze Green is a pioneer in the world of street art. Doze Green started his graffiti career as an old school New York City writer in the 70′s and was part of the legendary Rock Steady Crew. Moving from graffiti writing, into a vast array of paintings, prints and even vinyl sculptures, Doze Green creates works with an energetic motion to them, constantly evolving and trekking forward. From canvas to murals, his tribal, sci-fi characters come to life, engaging us in their fantasy world.
”Through stream-of-consciousness painting, Doze Green creates fractured imagery to convey infinite possibilities. His intention is to reveal works with an ever-changing narrative. Multi-dimensional planes and illusion of time are presented through fragmented, incomplete figures. He believes by depicting beings that are not fully materialized, these beings are not of this realm. He presents possibilities of immortality through paintings where narratives are interminable. His collection of paintings is an extension of this metaphysical concept.”–Jonathan LeVine Gallery
