This just in over the teletype wires….
Brooklyn born Street Artist Dain is hitting Brooklynite Gallery September 12 to revisit a time when socialism in America was WELCOMED via government work programs, the G.I. Bill, and Social Security. Now, during a national healthcare debate when such inexplicable, intractable ignorance is on display about the true nature of representative government, DAIN is doing his part aesthetically to usher in an era of social responsibility and community connectedness.
His black and white portraits of everyday working men and women from 65 years ago have been rearing their coiffed heads all over the streets this spring and summer, usually with a pastel painted background and selected garment features highlighted in a nod to Warholian oversplash.
Describing the work of Dain, Brooklynite says, “Infusing the glamour and glitz of the 1940’s together with a Brooklyn working class edge, he seeks to turn back the hands of time— Even if we were never there before.”
A usual phenomenon, street artists are a societal crystal ball.
