You may know him as the dude behind the ubiquitous iZombie graffiti stencils, “Fuck your phone, keep your head up.” Or the broken-hearted bunny that seems to surface on all sorts of neighborhood surfaces. Well, Brooklyn-born street artist Adam Dare is now heading indoors for a solo show over at 212 Arts (240 East 4th Street). The “All About the Bunny” series, a re-imagining of his signature character, kicks off tonight.

From the mailbag:

Veteran graffiti and street artist Adam DARE is back with a new series. Bombing trains in the 80s, his broken hearted bunny began popping up on the streets of New York City and has become synonymous with street art.  All About the Bunny is the first time that DARE has reimagined his iconic character, giving them personalities and traits that reflect his own multilayered experiences. His series stems from a conversation with his son Matteos, whose young, buoyant creativity dared to imagine the multiple forms of his father’s iconic bunny.

Dare is a Brooklyn-born NYC street artist, bitten by the graffiti bug during the summer of 1980 as he watched a tag being left at the Park Circle skating rink. Since then he’s made his mark on walls, trains and tunnels with the tenacious drive he retains today.

Since the second wave of NYC graffiti artists, he’s been best known for his Bunny, an icon he’s drawn since childhood. This heartbroken, blind bunny earned Dare the nickname “TheBunnyman” and inspired his slogan “Ain’t about the money, All about the Bunny.”

Stay tuned to Boogie for our official interview with Adam Dare in the coming days.
