"The icon that is Rammellzee is represented here as an homage to my personal big brother and mentor. He was and still is a great motivation in my work. I am just paying my respects to the master.
Like in the days of the ancients, when the pharaohs, emperors, and kings of great nations walked through the veil of existence in the 3rd density. Their physical bodies would be prepared in ritual for the afterlife. Some were entombed in sarcophagi, others on a funeral pyre, but most if not all wore some kind of death mask representational of the divine eternal face to be greeted on the next plane. Others where garnished with fierce masks to repel demons on their cosmic journey. RAMM always expressed that he would traverse the hells to slay then return to forever. The Death Mask is my interpretation of just that." - Doze Green

ABOUT Doze Green:
Cubist influences include ascending and descending planes and repetitive, overlapping, and concentric lines in an otherwise undefined landscape. For Doze Green, this energy and motion of created forms exist in a visual meeting place of ideas. Influenced by Edo period paintings, Doze Green mixes black gesso with Sumi ink and applies “creatively chaotic, and intuitive brushstrokes,” in a calligraphy-inspired and graffiti aesthetic. Doze Green translates these primitive markings as “biological entities, a swarm of arrows coming in from infinite perspective.”
Doze Green is also known for his live painting performances. Doze Green’s work is in many public and private collections throughout the United States, Japan, Europe, and Australia. His works have been published in BlackBook, Anthem, Juxtapoz, Tokion, and Vibe and reviewed on CNN.
