Dr. Dax is an Atlanta graffiti legend. His street art legacy has graced the city for over two decades. In the early 2000's he fused his passion for photography with his distinctive color sense, creating a style that is often emulated, but never duplicated. Club designer Patti Krohngold of artmixproductions.com worked with southern artists, including graffiti master Dr. DAX, painter Jason Horton, and mixed-media guru James Booth, to layer the rooms in a Rauschenberg-meets-Warhol style of pop-art collage featuring numerals, animals, subway tags and cartoonish figures. Atlanta metal artist Luke Prestridge used a volcanic rock molecule to inspire his patterns for the balcony rails and spinning metal and plexi chandeliers. This street style offers an edgy alternative to the plush leather. suede, and faux-croc tufted walls and banquettes. Natural teak tables from Bali offer an organic touch, while the sound and intelligent lighting spares no expense in creating a dramatic environment. The vibrant color palette provides a dynamic backdrop to the colorful clientele.
