Using images of Hollywood icons and fashion models, the New York based artist DAIN juxtaposes celebrity icons, creating hybrids that dissociate the familiar to create something surreal.

In his correlated images, our idealizations of these famous personalities become empty. This month, Leanna Valente, author of Art & Fashion, was given the opportunity to interview the artist.
