Synopses & Reviews
D*Face has been a leading figure in urban art for well over a decade. A contemporary of Banksy, he was at the forefront of the urban art movement, and has had a constant presence throughout its meteoric rise into popular culture.
This long-awaited monograph shows the development of his career as an artist to date, encompassing his continuing street work, and the path that led him from the early beginnings of the street art genre to multiple sell-out solo exhibitions around the world. Containing previously unseen images of his working process and studio, as well as firsthand anecdotes, and the stories behind his extraordinary work, the book provides an insider's view of one of Britain's most important urban artists.
"Always experimenting and evolving, D*Face represents the best of urban art...With its dozens of first-rate images and engaging text, The Art of D*Face: One Man and His Dog-published by Laurence King Publishing-is a model of an artist's monograph." - Vandalog
"[The Art of D*Face is] a 340 page masterstroke of genius that creatively uses fold out spreads and sticker sheets to deliver an insightful look at some of D*Face's most famed and impactful work." - HYPEBEAST
About the Author
'D*Face is one of Britain's leading "newbrow" artists, and damn if he isn't as sharp and clever – if not quite as surreptitious – as Banksy (and sharper and cleverer by half than Damien Hirst).'
