DOPEciety is a creative collective of visual artists and designers. Denisio Truitt, a Liberian-American artist and writer, is the “brainchild” behind the brand which reflects her dual identity. She began DOPEciety by selling t-shirts that showed her original artworks featuring the “Dean Gle” mask. After the success of her t-shirts, Denisio partnered with Michael Wilson and the two expanded DOPEciety into a fusion of eccentric art, music and culture. Every month DOPEciety hosts and curates events featuring emerging artists. I had the pleasure of getting to know more about Denisio and her success with DOPEciety.
