About the Artist

Daze

Daze (b. Chris Ellis, 1962) is an American graffiti artist. Daze began writing graffiti in the New York City subway in the mid-1970s, while he was a student at the High School of Art & Design. In 1981, his work was featured in the Mudd Club group exhibition “Beyond Words,” which also included the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. The following year, he had a solo show at Fashion Moda, Bronx, NY, and has gone on to exhibit at venues such as the Sidney Janis Gallery, New York, NY (1983); the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen, Denmark (1984); the Groninger Museum, Groningen, Netherlands (1992); and the Aldrich Museum, Ridgefield, CT (1995), among others. He lives and works in New York.
