One of the most prominent and influential New York City graffiti artists, Daze is best known for his wall writing and spay-painting on subway cars during the late 1970s and early 1980s. By the mid-1980s he was transitioning to painting on canvas.

Daze’s pictures capture the grit and energy of the city he loves. The 7 Yard features the artist’s iconic graffiti markings in acrylic, the soft impression of a young woman’s face rendered in spray-paint, and a hyper-detailed depiction of a train yard in oil paint, which is remarkably similar to the train yard near MAG here in Rochester.

Rochester’s WALL\THERAPY project sponsored four large-scale exterior murals by Daze. Visit www.wall-therapy.com for more information.
