Electrik Sheep is proud to announce the upcoming exhibition featuring Kid Acne called Dust In The Giant’s Eye. July 1st through August 1st, 2010 is the date of the exhibit, and you’ll definitely be treated to some killer graffiti, and a possible of some still existent acne! (As an aside, peep the photos that Danny sent me from the Prefab 77 show at Laz)
Electrik Sheep proudly presents: Dust In The Giant’s Eye – an exclusive exhibition by modern-day renaissance man and UK graffiti stalwart, Kid Acne.
The Sheffield based artist rides into town like baddies off Super Gran (that means he drives a Sinclair C5) for his inaugural show in the North East.
Kid Acne began writing graffiti as a boy, inspired by its infinite scale, colour and immediacy. Applying the same DIY ethos to the rest of his output, he spent his teenage years creating underground fanzines, comics and releasing limited run 7″ and Lp’s on his own Invisible Spies imprint.
His work as a grown-up has been seen throughout the world, in exhibitions from Helsinki to Melbourne and in weekend rap-sprays from New York to Azerbaijan.
Whilst Kid Acne’s signature illustrations have graced apparel for the world’s leading brands, the man himself continues to paint walls in sub-zero temperatures. His current cast of warrior women and mythical creatures inhabit a fantastical world of epic slogans and backhanded compliments…
And he still has acne.
