Based In: Bronx
Website: Dennis RedMoon Darkeem
Dennis RedMoon Darkeem is a multimedia artist who creates work based on the familiar objects that he views through his daily travels, discovering elements in existing architecture and among everyday items found within the home. Dennis ultimately sets out to express a meaningful story about events in his life and those found with the communities in which he works. His multimedia works allow for great versatility and a rich viewer experience as the eye uncovers the multiple layers that often characterize mixed media art. Denis was recently awarded a Spaceworks Bronx Community Artist Grant, which he will use towards the development of Bronx Fathers Project.

More about Dennis RedMoon
Dennis enjoys using his art to bring his community together. In 2000 and 2004, he produced two mixed-media performance art projects in the Bronx at The Point’s CDC space “Live at the Edge”. The performances titled, “Clothesline” and “The Love and Fear Experience,” included visual art, dance, music, film, spoken word, and photography. The performances were viewed by more than 500 people. The performances focused on themes of coming of age in the Bronx, rituals and tradition, child abuse, race and sexual identity, religion, and self-pride. Dennis has also worked with the Bronx Museum of Art on its first community art award grant where he collaborated with many artists and performers.
