DALLAS, TX.- Dallas Contemporary announces DZINE: Victory, the artist’s largest exhibition to date of newly commissioned work in mixed media and sculptural installation. DZINE combines his rich Puerto Rican culture with the universal desires for victory and recognition in two of the museum’s galleries. The exhibition runs from 19 January 2013 - 31 March 2013..

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.

Peter Doroshenko, Dallas Contemporary director, states: “Dzine has been on the starting-line of all recent popular culture trends for the past ten years. From Baroque abstraction to the recent nail salon phenomenon, he meshes contemporary culture and an active studio production into an Oxford meets San Juan barrio life. His over-the-top exhibition will engage and challenge every visitor to Dallas Contemporary”.

DZINE was a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award for Painting and Sculpture. In 2007, DZINE represented Ukraine as one of five artists in the 52nd Venice Biennale, and in 2011, was selected as the Kraus Visiting Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University. He has held solo exhibitions at the Bass Museum of Art in Miami, Contemporary Art Museum in S. Louis and Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico in San Juan.
