R.I.P. Dash Snow

Dash Snow, a rising star in the decadent downtown New York art scene, was found dead in the Lafayette House hotel on Monday night from an apparent heroin overdose. He was 27. Snow seemed on the verge of wider success and notoriety, with representation by Peres Projects, exhibition credits including the 2006 Whitney Biennial, Saatchi Gallery, and London Royal Academy, not to mention a notoriously candid cover story in New York Magazine.  Snow is survived by his two year old daughter, Secret.

Rest in Peace.
