En sand ‘walk on the wild side’ gennem New Yorks undergrund med kunstkometen Dash Snow, der brændte så tragisk ud som 27-årig.

New York i slutningen af 90’erne, da downtown Manhattan stadig var råt og beskidt. Her var den selvlærte kunstner Dash Snow i sit element, og fra gaden udviklede han sig i 00’erne fra graffiti-tegner til galleri-darling og international art star. I en skiftevis kreativ og (selv)destruktiv tåge af alkohol og stoffer turede Snow - som i virkeligheden kom fra en stenrig familie af kunstsamlere - byen rundt med sin alternative familie af venner, inden den unge kunstkomet tragisk brændte ud i en overdosis af heroin i 2009. Cheryl Dunns collage-portræt er et sandt ‘walk on the wild side’ gennem New Yorks undergrund, helt i sin hovedpersons vilde, rastløse ånd.

A walk on the wild side through the New York underground with the art comet Dash Snow, who tragically burnt out as a 27-year-old.

New York in the late 90s, when downtown Manhattan was still rough and dirty. Here, the self-taught artist Dash Snow was in his element, and he evolved from street graffiti artist in the 00s to a gallery darling and international art star. In an alternately creative and (self-)destructive haze of alcohol and drugs, Snow – who came from a wealthy family of art collectors – toured around the city with his alternative family of friends before the young shooting star tragically burned out in an overdose of heroin in 2009. Cheryl Dunn’s collage portrait is a true walk on the wild side through the New York underground, entirely in the spirit of the wild and restless protagonist.
