     Doug Z & NINK - No Imagination No Kingdom...
    Doug Z* Biography Born and raised in Monmouth County, NJ, Doug Z began drawing caricatures and cartoons of family and friends (both real & imaginary) at a very young age. Throughout high school, his passion for making art took over, as things like getting good grades and extracurricular activities quickly fell by the wayside. Cutting school became a frequent occurrence, whether it was to embark on a train ride to the city, or merely drift off with friends on a random psychedelic experience somewhere. As a life-long admirer of graffiti, "DZ" became completely obsessed with making art with spray paint.
    With a head overflowing with ideas and the determination to match, art became life. The brushes and tubes of paint were discarded. Formulas for patterns and stencil combinations merged with compositional and spiritual theories. Every last penny went towards what has since been summed up as "spraypaint surrealiZm". Exhibitions at local establishments quickly followed, as friends and strangers alike warmed up to this unique fusion of street and fine art. After being rejected by several art schools, DZ's work was welcomed into group shows in NYC and Philadelphia.
    Aside from continuous exhibitions throughout the tri-state area, his paintings have been shown in Greece, London, Belgium, and featured on TV and in several publications. At age 31, DZ currently resides and paints in NJ, continuing to encourage all beings, big and small to "EVOLVE OR DISSOLVE".
    Recent clients include Element Skateboards and on-going creative consulting work with Mtv/Viacom.
