        DAIN

        Born in Brooklyn, New York, DAIN blends glamour and grit brilliantly. He combines the visual language of graffiti with collaged old portraits of Hollywood glamour stars. Crossing genres and often working single pieces back and forth between the street and studio, DAIN combines wheatpasting, silkscreening, spray paint, collage, and acrylic.

        DAIN views his work as a confrontation between the destructive gestures of graffiti and the femininity of his Hollywood subjects. His process begins with a black-and-white photo that he layers with old advertisements, printed fragments, logos, and miscellaneous smaller images. He then begins adding paint; his unmistakable trademark is the “circle and drip” around the eye of his subjects. With a love for 1940s and 50s Hollywood glamour, his work reflects appreciation for an era when women dressed beautifully, revealing very little and leaving much to the imagination.

        His gallery work has been featured in shows around the world in New York, Miami, Chicago, Portland, Montreal, Rome, London and Paris.
