A favorite among the art, literary and indie music scenes, Dzama is best known for his figurative compositions of pen and watercolor on manila- colored paper. Bearing a characteristic palette of muted browns, greys, greens and reds, Dzama's drawings are populated by an expansive cast of human, animal and hybrid characters. In recent years, Dzama has extended his practice to include work in multiple media. A recent exhibition, for example, transformed the gallery into an odeum of imagination, replete with drawings, sculptures, dioramas and films. Featuring an interview with the artist by filmmaker Spike Jonze and designed in collaboration with the artist as two hardback books twin- bound into one with a custom drawing on the cover, Even the Ghost of the Past is destined to become an instant collector's item.
