On the 10th anniversary of the death of Dee Dee Ramone, Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Projects gallery will host a retrospective exhibition celebrating a lesser-known artistic outlet of the punk rock genius. Unbeknownst to many, Dee Dee was also an avid painter, quietly creating works on canvas throughout his lifetime. A substantive collection of these rare pieces has been provided by his estate to be put on public display for the first time, and are described by Fairey as reminiscent of, “…Warhol’s Pop art, Basquiat’s street scrawl, and Punk’s sense of humor and antagonism.” The paintings will be shown at Subliminal Projects along with purchasable prints by Dee Dee and Fairey.
