DESCRIPTION

Chicago-based artist, Dzine, is a self-taught, mixed media artist who investigates Kustom Kulture and its relationship to art, sub cultures and the institution. His work (re)contextualizes these diverse elements to develop his own language. Infusing his trademark visual and audio language, the artist uses the sculptural and artistic form of lowriding as a platform to explore his emotional relationship with culture and beauty. His work addresses these issues through a lens of spirituality, beauty, desire, faith, folklore, and identity.

Victory is the artist's largest exhibition to date of newly commissioned work in sculptural installation and mixed media works. Transforming two of the museum's largest galleries, Dzine will combine his rich Puerto Rican culture with references to universal desires for victory and recognition.
