D*Face Opens Tonight at Jonathan Levine Gallery
London street artist D*Face doesn’t get the big head that some artists do, and can’t be bothered by repetition – any medium is good and everything gets attacked in a fun cartoony way and images of superheroes, pop heros, dead presidents… all get the D*Face skullification. For such dark symbols, the light-hearted feeling permeates the various permutations.
