Carlos Rolón, known as Dzine, creates ornate works of art and installations that combine contemporary art strategies with the "Kustom Kulture" and exuberant visuality of his Puerto Rican upbringing in Chicago. Formally trained as a painter, Rolon is the author of "Nailed", a photographic history of nail art from the ancient Egyptians to contemporary fashion. Rolon is known for his over-the-top environments that encourage viewers to interact with elements of his childhood such a recreated version of his mother’s beauty salon installed in his family living room. Rolón’s work has been exhibited in prominent venues as diverse as Miami's Bass Museum of Art and the 2007 Venice Biennale.
