Dash Snow RIP



Dash Snow, New York Artist, Dies at 27

By ROBERTA SMITH
Dash Snow, a promising young New York artist, died Monday night at Layfayette House, a hotel in Lower Manhattan. He was 27 and lived in Manhattan. His death was confirmed by his grandmother, the art collector and philanthropist Christophe de Menil, who said that Mr. Snow had died of a drug overdose.

Mr. Snow gained prominence after being featured in an article titled “Warhol’s Children” that appeared in New York magazine in 2007. He worked in video and photography and also developed a distinctive collage style that fused and contrasted found images in fresh and suggestive ways. He exhibited in galleries and museums in New York, Los Angeles and Europe and is currently featured in “Abstract America: New Painting and Sculpture” at the Saatchi Gallery in London.

Ms. de Menil said that he had been in rehabilitation in March and had been off drugs until very recently.

I was hopeful and curious for what he could do and inspired by what he already did.

RIP

Very sad and depressing in every way right down to the baby left fatherless. There are things money can't fix. Dash Snow sported an annoying hipper-than-thou art-world persona, but his artistic talent was undeniable.Unfortunately, he was not only a brilliant artist but a drug addict as well. My condolences to his family, friends and Secret. No hope in dope.

Too cool to care, too hip to feel. The young and the wasted.
