About Dain

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 has no doubt become one of the most influential street artists to emerge from New York, his pieces now an integral part of the city’s visual landscape. Unlike most street art, the artist’s intriguing portraits of old Hollywood glamour stars are not found on murals, but rather on rusty old doors, city mailboxes, and hidden alleys, adding to the arts undeniable mystique and charm.
DAIN incorporates the visual language of graffiti with collaged old portraits of crossed genres - a woman's face with a man’s body. His process begins with a black-and-white photo that he layers with old advertisements, printed fragments, logos, and miscellaneous smaller images. He then adds paint, and his unmistakable trademark of the “circle and drip” around the eye of his subjects stating that his artworks are “faces of eyes” that speak to him. DAINS’s work reflects his love of 1940’s and 50’s Hollywood glamour and his appreciation for an era of beautifully adorned women, revealing very little.
