This is the illustrated story of New York artist Chris ‘Daze’ Ellis’s successful transition from the subways to international studios and galleries. Follow his 30 year career from his teen years as a graffiti writer to his current life as a professional painter, mentor, and family man. This book, with more than 250 photographs, is a journey that tracks seminal moments in Daze’s life that shaped his art. View his aesthetic evolution, from ‘Graffiti High’ (New York’s High School of Art and Design) and an ‘unsanctioned’ street art phase to exhibitions with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Train photos from the 1970s and 80s, a broad representation of Daze’s studio and mural works, and personal photos guide the reader through an artistic portfolio spanning five decades. Contributions by graffiti writer Jay ‘J.SON’ Edlin and essayist Claire Schwartz, and a foreword by graffiti historian and chronicler Sacha Jenkins complete this volume.

About the author:

Chris Daze Ellis began painting the gritty New York Subways in the mid-1970s while attending the High School of Art & Design. His work can currently be found in galleries and museums worldwide.
