Notes

Part of a collaboration with Real Skateboards, D*Face produced a limited run of skateboards designed around American skateboard professional Justin Brock.

D*Face also painted an oversized mural based on this design in one of London's skateparks, and Justin Brock can be seen skating around the iconic Brick Lane on one of these boards.

A skateboarder himself, D*Face is one of the most prolific contemporary urban artists of his generation. Working with a variety of mediums and techniques, he uses a family of dysfunctional characters to satirise and hold to ransom all that falls into their grasp – a welcome jolt of subversion in today’s media-saturated environment.

In 2005 D*Face set up the gallery ‘StolenSpace’, which continues to be Londons foremost contemporary urban art gallery.

D*Face is one of Britain’s leading “newbrow” artists, and damn if he isn’t as sharp and clever – if not quite as surreptitious – as Banksy (and sharper and cleverer by half than Damien Hirst.)” – Peter Frank.
