RIP Mr Hopper

Though anticipated, Dennis Hopper's passing comes as a shock. Iconoclast, mad genius, Mr. Hopper was also an awesome artist. Meeting him at his ACE Gallery show back in 2006 was a lifetime high. He seemed immortal. In a way, he is. The L.A.Times remembers him. See also Dennis Hopper Class, Bruno Icher's tribute in Libération. Video: Actor Dennis Hopper, on Art.
