HUGE PRAISE from the one and only Dante Ross:
“I admire Dennis’ work and his imagination, he is in my mind a criminally slept on creative force. Most people know him from his Skateboard graphics for the likes of Anti Hero one of the most authentically gnarly skate brands around. He has also done design for a host of others including Adidas and is a serious sculpture, his main mediums are lino and wood cutting and his is an uncanny at this craft. I have been chronicling Dennis’ work for a while now and I thought on the eve of his forthcoming show it would be a good idea to show a multiple part retrospective of some of Dennis work. Rarely do I feel as passionate about a friend’s art. Dennis is one of those rare exceptions, as I feel at times as if he is Generation X’s Pushead or Big Daddy Roth, if that makes any sense.”
