"I just want to leave this mark or be creative within this environment I’ve grown up within…[the] aggressive city that is London." -D*Face
Street artist D*Face makes humorous and satirical commentary with his posters and sculptures, encouraging viewers to re-evaluate their urban environment. With his striking characters and subversively reworked pop icons, he calls attention to consumerism, media, and a public fascination with fame. Citing ‘80’s-era punk rock, skateboard graphics, and Thrasher Skateboard Magazine as major influences, D*Face’s signature aesthetic serves as a culmination of such interests. Based in London, his work has appeared on the streets and in galleries throughout the United Kingdom and the United States. Watch the interview on Walrus TV.
D*Face grew up in London and had a childhood interest in graffiti when he was exposed to Henry Chalfant's coverage of New York subway graffiti in Spraycan Art and Subway Art. Later as a teenager skateboarding, he was inspired by Thrasher Skateboard Magazine’s coverage of skateboard deck graphics, which led to his interest in stickers and the DIY mentality associated with skate and punk fanzines. He attended an illustration and design course and worked as a freelance illustrator/designer while honing his street work. Influences included Shepard Fairey's "Obey Giant" art campaign, Jim Philips, hip hop, punk music, and popular animated cartoons. http://www.dface.co.uk/
On August 6, 2009, El Mac's "Faces of Life" show opened at FIFTY24SF to crowds of eager fans waiting to get a glimpse of his paintings. The show featured large to medium size burlap canvases done with spray paint, featuring faces of different girls Mac knows, using mostly black & white or gray tones with just a little bit of color added. The show turned out beautifully - each of the pieces a testament to El Mac's talent, detail and meticulous can control.
To coincide with the show, El Mac in conjunction with Paperworks Lab is releasing a print, "Song of Songs". It’s a 7 color hand pulled serigraph that is in a very limited edition of 50 pieces. Printed on black Stonehenge 310 gsm 100% cotton archival deckled edge paper sized at a massive 30x40 inches. FIFTY24SF Gallery has sold out of its prints but if you act quickly, you may still be able to get some online through Paperworks Lab.
