Dash Snow Dies; Nobody Notices

Dash Snow, the artist who is best known for creating a hamster nest out of shredded phone books in a London hotel room, is predictably dead of a heroin overdose. Tragically, not only was Michael Jackson's funeral the same week, but global infatuation with trust fund brats who bite the thousands of hands which feed them is at the lowest ebb of the century. Timing is everything.

Very sad and depressing in every way right down to the baby left fatherless. There are things money can't fix. Dash Snow sported an annoying hipper-than-thou art-world persona, but his artistic talent was undeniable.Unfortunately, he was not only a brilliant artist but a drug addict as well. My condolences to his family, friends and Secret. No hope in dope. If anyone is interested I started collecting all the information or sites related to Dash Snow. check out the below link to know all about Dash Snow (around 200 sites)

Ddad, that's very kind of you.

However, there are thousands upon thousands of undeniably talented artists in the world who are not drug addicts, and who live productive, responsible, giving lives, producing wonderful art. We don't hear much about these artists, largely because people such as yourself choose to focus on artists like Dash Snow, egged on by a corrupt and dysfunctional art establishment.

If you are really interested in art, not in glamor, fakery and misery, look for some living artists to canonize. You'll do a lot more good for a lot more people.

Society just never seems to tire of that Bad Boy Artist trope...
