DAIN, born and raised in Brooklyn, has emerged as one of the most recognizable names in urban art worldwide. Combining black and white photos and the bright, intense colors of graffiti art, he creates smoldering paintings that pay homage to the classic Hollywood glamour of the 1940s and 1950s and its representation of the feminine mystique. Dain views his work as a confrontation between the destructive gestures of graffiti and the femininity of his Hollywood subjects.
Often working on the street and in his studio, Dain combines silkscreening, acrylic, collage, wheat pasting, and spray paint. He begins with a classic black and white portrait and layers advertisements, logos, and other images. His pieces are then treated with both acrylic and spray pains as they morph into collages of stunning beauty. Dain's final and most distinguishing component is when he marks them with "the circle drip" around the eye, usually in bright neon pink.
