"I was just in the 16th Street Mall arts festival," says Donez. Taht's why he was carrying this new, untitled piece he did with a black Sharpie; it's priced at $45.
Style analysis: Donez is an example of 16th Street style done well -- especially since this street fashion is accessorized by street art from a sidewalk sale. His art is classic and monochromatic, as is his personal style. He rocks a chunky, gray knit sweater to break up the black and white. Donez also sports his favorite scarf and experiments with checked pants.
Always combine art and fashion when in doubt, Denver.
