“Piss on Purple Snow”
Brooklyn, NY 1/21/12
Bushwick artist Ozzie takes up the offer the first snow accumulation provides this season. Now 84 dog years young, this humble veteran gifts us his first work of the new year the same week gallery owners sat down to plot and proceed with elevating Bushwick’s artists by bringing attention from Chelsea to the gallery-cluster developing in North Bushwick. In response to the growing attention and buzz surrounding the neighborhood, Ozzie gives us a warm embellishment upon a cold, continually changing surface, showing his commitment to pushing his work forward and providing us with an honest example of a mature artist who’s not afraid to let his work flow from within.
