Artist Profile: “Doze Green Arklandia Dreamstate” by Mike Popso

dozegreen

Great portrait of artist Doze Green by my buddy, Detroit-based filmmaker, Mike Popso. I’ve been a fan of Doze for a long time; his artwork was the reason I blind-bought albums like Deeper Concentration 2 in high school. A lot has changed since then! For the last five years he’s been living and working on a self-sufficient farm in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

In “Doze Green Arklandia Dreamstate,” Popso captures the vibrancy of Green’s new life and new work. His upcoming show at the Openspace gallery in Paris opens November 20th and runs until December 20th. Watch the video profile below!

Part of The Atlantic‘s American Dreams series, this video portrait by Kelly Loudenberg, gives insight into the personal motivation behind his work, featuring Gomez’s parents who are Mexican immigrants themselves, working jobs similar to those he depicts.
