Dain’s Transformation Opening Reception

Dain's Transformation Opening ReceptionWednesday, February 27, 6-9pm – Avant Gallery, 309 23rd Street, Miami Beach

Avant Gallery will host an opening reception for Dain: Transformation, which will be on view through March 30. The exhibition celebrates the beauty of classic Hollywood while adding contemporary characteristics of spray paint and collage. Dain’s pieces portray contrasting concepts of ethereal and roughness through the different mediums clearly visible to the viewer. The use of multimedia allows his art to maintain the street art quality in gallery settings. The Brooklyn-born Dain is considered one of the more influential artists to emerge from the current New York street art movement. Dain faithfully produces works that are both evocative and beautiful in their composition. His love of old Hollywood glam is evident in much of his work, and his trademark circle and drip around the eye still remains a mystery. This, along with his roots in graffiti, create a gritty yet delicate art style that is all his own. Dain’s art has been featured in shows in New York, Miami, Chicago, Portland, London and Paris.
