Sara and I were extremely saddened to hear yesterday that Dash Snow, an artist who for us truly personified the “downtown” art scene here in New York, died Monday night of a heroin overdose.
It seemed like every week, especially in the summer, we’d see Dash riding his bike through the streets in our neighborhood. If you live in New York than you know his influence was deeply felt: on the streets through his graffiti, in local galleries through his artwork, and at parties and events through his physical presence. There was no question that Dash Snow lived on the edge. You felt it in everything he did.
Our sincere condolences go out to Dash’s family, his friends, and his loved ones.
Most sadly, Secret Snow, Dash’s daughter, will turn two years old next month.
