Openings: Dain at Folioleaf in Dumbo

By - Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

Thursday, April 3rd at Folioleaf in Dumbo, Brooklyn street artist Dain will be showing new works in a gallery space for the first time in nearly a decade. Owner Todd Masters was gracious enough to allow 12oz an inside look at the work before the opening and we were impressed with what we saw. The work is vibrant, richly layered and exhibits skillful use of many mediums. Dain’s trademark circled eye is present in many of the pieces and the use of classical beauty found in the faces of those in fashion and entertainment is prominently featured, re-imagined in Dain’s characteristic style.

From the press release: “In his collages Dain appropriates images found in contemporary periodicals. Through his elegant juxtapositions, Dain adopts the content and contexts of the original images to create his own surreal portraits.”

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 3rd from 6-9. On view until May 17th

Folioleaf Gallery is located in Dumbo at 111 Front Street, #226. Take the Ⓕ train one stop into Brooklyn and get off at York Street.
