Some of today's best-known artists made their reputations on the street. Street art finds its origins in the graffiti artists (and artists heavily inspired by graffiti) who started showing in galleries and art institutions during the 1970s and '80s, like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
D*Face is a contemporary British street artist best known for his distinctive graffiti, stickers, and posters placed in various cities around the world. Featuring recurring imagery of celebrities and punk iconography, D*Face’s oeuvre is characterized by his bright, graphic aesthetic and focus on consumerism and the ways in which it shapes everyday life.
