D*Face, the leading in urban contemporary art, joined the street art inspired movement #DubaiWalls.
D*Face a.k.a Dean Stockton has been a leading figure in Urban Contemporary Art, inaugurating his career in the streets of London over 15 years ago. He is one of the best known figures to rise from the British scene with a unique and particular fusion of pop culture and graffiti meshed with a rebellious streak and an ingenious imagination.
Using the term - aPOPcalyptic - to define his work, a blend of 'pop art’ spliced with fragility of life, Stockton’s work reflects popular culture, centring on the ideals of the American dream and notion of 'good' triumphing over 'evil'.
He aims to encourage the public not just to 'see', but to look at what surrounds them and their lives and our increasingly bizarre fascination with celebrity, fame and consumerism.
Incorporating a broad range of street influence throughout his fine art gallery work, Stockton continues to produce work that is not only stimulating, but also technically beautiful, with a refined sensibility in his screen printing work and colour choices.
One of fifty artists commissioned to create a 50th anniversary Penguin book cover, he is the only urban artist to date whose work has featured on the front cover of the fine art publication Art Review. His sell out solo shows include ‘Death & Glory’, 'EyeCons', 'aPOPcalypse now' in the UK, 'All your Dreams Belong to Us' in New York, 'Going Nowhere Fast' in Los Angeles and 'Burn Brighter' in Australia.
His work regularly sells at Christies, Sotherbys and Bonhams auction houses and yet he still continues to create work for free on the streets and as such he has extensively travelled the globe pushing the boundaries of what has been coined 'urban art'.
