Here’s some background info about Above Art Studios from its director – Dontae “Dtox” Muse (IG @dtoxdtreeman):
Above Art Studios was a sketch that turned into a work of art. Initially my business partner (Wilford Charles) and I sought out a space where we could host music events, as our background is in audio art not visual art. During the process I went to visit an artist friend of ours to get a custom pair of sneakers for a music video we were shooting and he mentioned wanted to start his own gallery. He since changed his mind but the fire was lit in my heart and people asking me how I would accomplish it without any formal Art History or MFA background was the battery in my back.
