About The Artist

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

NOTE: This RUN is uniquely hand-embellished by Daze and may vary from the image shown.

"This painting was part of an ongoing series I started called ‘The Grey Scale” The painting is supposed to capture the excitement I once had of watching my name go by. It’s a fragmented version of a subway piece. I have purposely left out color because I just want people to concentrate on the image.

The Grey Scale series focused mainly on images of subway tunnels and blurry trains going by at high speed. The whole practice of painting alone at night in dark tunnels is a very solitary and secretive one. It’s almost zen-like because you become attuned to every little sound . You become hyper sensitive to the slightest disturbance. I wanted to create images that gave people a chance to peek in on that underground world." - Daze


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Chris Daze Ellis began his prolific career painting the gritty New York subways in the mid 70!s while attending the High School of Art & Design. He is one of the few artists from that period to make the successful transition from the subways to the studio. His first group show was the “Beyond Words” show held at the Mudd club in New York in 1981. Showing alongside artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, Daze sold his first work, an impromptu collaboration with Basquiat, from this show. His first solo show was held a year later in 1982 at Fashion Moda, a gallery in the Bronx. Since then he has had countless solo shows in such cities as Monte Carlo, Hong Kong, Paris, New York, Beijing, Chicago, and Singapore. His work has also been included in numerous group shows and museum surveys internationally.
