Dain

Born in 1974 - United States

BIOGRAPHY

One of the most influential street artists to emerge from New York, Dain 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. 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. Dain views his work as a confrontation between the destructive gestures of graffiti and the femininity of his Hollywood subjects.
