About Dennis Hayes


Born and raised in Buffalo New York and then a move to Detroit Michigan, artist Dennis Hayes IV, a.k.a. 7teen has lived most of his life in the aftermath of industrialized cities. Taking cues from these rust belt metropolises, the scientific and technical approach of the naturalist movement, fashion and the influence of niche counter cultures, he has integrated a signature style of harvesting found materials and a conceptual approach to the environment of his character based paintings.

I have a pen and ink drawing of yours from 1990 with dragons and a warrior with a chain and ball can you give me a value on it I would appreciate it thank you

Great Tree! (smile)

The colors in these paintings are great. I like the way the bird is rendered and the trees manage to not distract. The breaks in the branches are a clever idea too. I could live with these paintings.

Painting has a depth that is so subtle. It is a painting to view often to appreciate.

Great picture, love the layered background.

I love the second one, such beauty and sadness I could talk about this one for hours.

Dennis Hayes cleverly humanizes a realistic bird just by a touch in the eye. It is all in the bird's eye. Then behind and around the bird is a highly decorative joke or impossible situation or a merely satisfying decoration.
These would be just clever and decorative paintings except for the expressive eye of the bird.

I felt nothing.

amazing, the colors and composition are just flawless.
