In December 2017, Atta premiered a solo show of new work at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. It featured decomposing skulls bursting with new life and dynamic meteor swarms of organic matter, all painted on layers of wood.
In the center of Los Angeles in the gallery Corey Helford, Attaboy presented a new series of paintings called "Grow In The Dark". For his first showing in the last six years, he has decided to share some pieces that have a more sculptural dimension to them.
"Grow in the Dark" is a series by Daniel "Attaboy" Seifert that is a result of the 2016 presidential election. Attaboy explains that mushrooms grow "on the decay of dead matter," conveying the idea that one can grow from what seems to be destruction.
