DAIN views his work as a confrontation between the destructive gestures of graffiti and the femininity of his Hollywood subjects.
DAIN’s works have been exhibited in collectives and solo shows in Paris, Berlin, Rome, Miami and New York City. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art in Berlin, alongside artists such as Banksy and Invader. In recent years, DAIN was commissioned for public mural projects in New York City by fashion, apparel, and entertainment companies including Coach, Puma, and Netflix, respectively.
