American, 1981-2009, New York, New York, based in New York
Dash Snow was an artist whose works depict scenes of a sex, drug-taking, violence with candor, documenting the decadent lifestyle of a group of young New York City artists and their social circle. Snow began taking photographs as a teenager, he said, as a record of places he might not remember the next day, mostly due to hard partying. He was a member of the IRAK graffiti crew in the 1990s and went by the tag “SACE”. Some of his later collage-based work was characterized by his practice of using his own semen as a material applied to or splashed across newspaper photographs of police officers and other authority figures. Snow died from a drug overdose in 2009. He was interviewed in New York City on July 9, 2005.
