Jeff Green (1964) was born in the Upper West Side of Manhattan and is the protagonist of the New York art scene of the 1980s. Pioneer of Writing, he begin to paint the New York subway in 1977, with mentors such as Dondi White, Phase 2 and Rammelzee who influence his aesthetics as well as philosophy, developing an extremely recognizable style in which he blends a futuristic vision with symbolic elements and related concepts to numerology. The following year he joins the Rock Steady Crew, the forerunner of a new dance style known as break dancing or B-Boying. The group begins dancing at art shows and galleries in Soho and the Lower East Side of Manhattan. In 1982 Green presents his works in two exhibitions at Fashion Moda, the same gallery where Jean Michel Basquiat exhibited and at Patty Astor's Fun Gallery with Keith Haring. Between 83-84, after appearances in important films such as Wildstyle (1982) with the Crew, Flashdance (1983) and Style Wars (1983), he exhibited in New York at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery, Leo Castelli and Barbara Brathen Gallery. Subsequently in 1986 he is present at the Surrealismo group show with Andy Warhol, in whose company he participates in the well-known documentary book Antonio's girls (1982) starring Jessica Lange, Jerry Hall, Pat Cleveland and Grace Jones. With the founder of Pop-Art he was a guest at the celebratory evening of the feature film painting at Studio 54. In the 1990s Doze Green moves to California evolving and perfecting his visual language in a coherent way. The structure of the letters is freed and the line is transformed into a perpetual flow from which abstract representations of the human body emerge. Since then Doze Green's work exhibited in major galleries and museums around the world and is featured in public and private collections. MIMESIS - Even The Greatest Stars marks the evolutionary apex of the artist's style. The synthesis of his journey in Milan.
