“Don’t take anything for granted, nothing lasts forever. Enjoy the journey, the destination is better left unknown.”
Dean Stockton, or D*Face as he is now known, was born in 1978 in London. He worked in advertising before embarking on his own artistic career. Drawing inspiration from New York’s graffiti scene of the 1970s and ’80s, D*Face has painted walls all over the world. His murals are a critique of socio-political issues, challenging topics such as consumerism and the American Dream. In past works he has used familiar cartoon figures such as Mickey Mouse and Hello Kitty. He would dissect them with images of skulls or symbols and created portraits of icons like Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain.
