Street Artist Dain Fuses Mixed Media, Wheatpasting and Collage

 - Apr 7, 2012
Dain is a street artist from Brooklyn, New York. Dain has been wheatpasting since JFK announced that the USA was going to war with Vietnam... Crazy! Dain's style can be described as mixed media, wheatpasting and collage, which is reminiscent of old-school Batman cartoons when Riddler used to send Batman a collage of words and funny photos whenever he wanted to get his mind-boggling messages across.

Dain got into collage work when he used to witness the artwork of his peers. He uses pictures of friends, celebrities and various other folks. Dain's signature red eye originated from an individual who was beaten up and ended up with a bloody eye, an individual that Dain used as a subject for one of his collage works. This inspired him to incorporate the dripping ink around the eyes of his subjects.
