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.
Dain is a contemporary artist known for his unique style of street art that combines traditional portraiture with collage techniques. Born in New York City, Dain began his artistic career as a graffiti artist in the early 2000s. He quickly gained recognition for his distinctive wheatpaste posters featuring vintage Hollywood glamour shots, which he would then embellish with graffiti tags, abstract shapes, and other mixed media elements. Dain's signature style is characterized by his use of iconic images from the golden age of Hollywood, such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and James Dean. He often incorporates vintage fashion advertisements, newspapers, and other found objects into his collages, which he then overlays with stenciled patterns and spray-painted tags. Dain's work is celebrated for its ability to seamlessly blend high and low culture, as well as his skill in creating compelling visual narratives that often explore themes of beauty, identity, and the passage of time. He has exhibited his work in galleries and museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Tate Modern in London, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Despite his success in the mainstream art world, Dain remains deeply connected to the street art community and continues to create work in public spaces around the world. His work can be found on walls and buildings in cities such as New York, London, Paris, and Tokyo. In recent years, Dain has expanded his practice beyond the realm of street art and has begun to experiment with new mediums such as sculpture and installation. He remains committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible with collage and mixed media, and his work continues to inspire and captivate audiences around the world.
