Artist: Born and bred in New York City, Eric Haze has contributed to the worlds of graffiti, contemporary art and graphic design for over four decades. As a founding member of the influential New York City collective The Soul Artists, Haze first exhibited work in 1974, going on to show his paintings and drawings alongside close friends such as Keith Haring and Jean Michael Basquiat in the early 1980s.
After shifting his focus from galleries to the graphic arts in the mid 80s, Haze emerged as the premier graphic designer of the exploding hip-hop movement, creating iconic logos and album covers as art director for some of the most influential and historical names in the genre. The new millennium has seen HAZE recommit himself to painting, with solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Paris. Haze’s work can also be found in public installations around the world, including works commissioned by Nike, Levis, and Casio. HAZE currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
