We are very shocked and sorry to say that artist Dash "2000" Fidel passed away in his sleep after battling cancer on Sunday, January 9th, 2010. The news of his passing hit the hearts of many as he was well known within the art community for his friendship, talent and cutting edge signature style pieces.
Dash "2000" Fidel had shown at the gallery many times over the years. His last piece he had on display at the gallery was in October during the Faces of Skid Dow exhibition which was a benefit for the homeless living on Skid Row. Dash was considered not only a friend of the gallery but a talented artist with a promising future.
We send all our love and support to the family, friends and the UTI crew.
