Biography of D*Face

Dean Stockton a.k.a D*Face was born in 1978 in London. As a teenager, he found an interest in graffiti through the books of Henry Chalfant, “Spraycan Art” and “Subway Art”. He was also fond of skateboarding and the punk culture, through magazines like Thrasher. As he wasn’t very good at school, he began studying photography in order to work in this field. But things turned out differently; he later turned to illustration. Meanwhile, he started to stick stickers on the streets of London. His passion soon took over his job. In 2005 he opened his own StolenSpace gallery in London.
His style is easily recognizable as he uses pictures of cultural icons (Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, the Queen, etc.). He also gets his inspiration from the works of artist Roy Lichtenstein. His goal is “to encourage people to not only see, but also to look around them, to rethink the stereotypes of our culture, to not remain passive before the reign of conspicuous consumption”.
Over time, D*Face has employed other techniques : spray, stencil, painting, and worked in major cities such as Barcelona, ​​New York, Tokyo… etc.
