Doze Green was born and raised in New York City. He is an original member of the infamous Rock Steady Crew. He is a pioneer of Hip Hop culture. He is a Graffiti Legend – The King of characters. He is a fusionist – a symbolist – a figurative painter – an artist’s artist. His work defies definition.
Over the years, Doze Green’s paintings have progressed from streets and into galleries. In the same spirit of graffiti they tell the stories of the oppressed which continue to be largely untold. His art career began on the walls and eventually the trains of NYC in 1974. By the mid 198s, he was exhibiting his work in art spaces such as the O.K. Harris Gallery, Tony Shafrazi Gallery and the Fun Gallery. Doze Green’s work is in may public and private collections throughout the USA, Japan, Europe and Australia.
