SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to announce an exhibition of artwork by Dee Dee Ramone. The exhibition commemorates the 10th Anniversary of Dee Dee’s death and celebrates the influence of this enigmatic rock icon and his valuable contribution to the punk rock movement.
Dee Dee was best known as the bassist, songwriter, and one of the founding members of the legendary American punk rock band, the Ramones. His sincere love for the visual arts and his boundless imagination inspired an ongoing series of paintings he created throughout his lifetime. These paintings are described by those who were close with the artist as highly reflective of his personality through their rebellious, dynamic, eccentric, and comedic aesthetic.
For this memorial exhibition, SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS has teamed up with the artist’s estate to present a substantive body of Dee Dee’s original work, on display for the first time in North America. These rare paintings were recently recovered on behalf of Dee Dee’s Estate after years of passion, persistence and determination. Collected in an effort to preserve Dee Dee’s multifaceted legacy, these works will now be on view to the public, providing a window into the identity, artistic talents, and unique persona of the legendary Dee Dee Ramone.
