Dean Stockton, also known as D*Face, is one of UK's most prolific Urban Contemporary artists. Taking the public streets as his canvas, he blends art, graffiti and design to create murals that at the time, preceded Urban Art’s emergence as it is known today. The artist describes his work, often characterised by vibrant hues and sharp lines, as 'aPOPcalyptic'. D*Face seeks to pick up from where the masters of 1980's American Pop Art left off by subverting everyday images and icons, criticising the consumer dominated world and encouraging the viewer to carefully consider what otherwise might be taken for granted. dface.co.uk / @dface_official
