Dark Twisted Fantasy: Dash Snow

One of the greatest artist you'll never about is Dash Snow. Dash Snow has one of the most interesting lineages you may ever hear about. His maternal grandfather was Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman. Robert Thurman is actress Uma Thurman's father. His maternal grandmother was a set and costume designer Marie-Christophe de Menil. Dash was also the a great-grandson of the founders of the Menil Art Collection in Houston, Dominique de Menil and John de Menil. His grandparents were French aristocrats who were heirs to fortunes based in textiles and oil-drilling equipment. Dash had art in his blood. His style was unique, although he was a photographer whose artwork depicted sex, drugs, poverty and violence it was in a way that was very taboo. Dash's life was cut short due to a drug overdose in 2009. In a sense this was his life depicting his art.

"Moments like this don't last forever." (Dash Snow's favorite quote)
