About the work
This portrait of Dash Snow was taken by Kai Regan in a small studio on Spring Street about five or six years ago. Kai was working on a collaboration for Supreme with Aaron Bondaroff. It was summertime so everyone started dropping by: Nate Lowman, Dan Colen, all the usual suspects. Dash rolled through with his girlfriend Jade and their daughter Secret. The portraits had been getting increasing theatrical as the day progressed. He told Kai, 'I want to be the Snowman' so they spent two hours slathering him with white paint. In retrospect this has become one of the most iconic images of Dash Snow on record.
