Dean Stockton aka D-Face was born in 1978 in London where he now lives and works. Artist, sculptor and illustrator he also opened his urban art gallery Stolenspace Gallery in London in 2005.
Since his teenage years, D*Face has been fascinated by the United States and the American Dream. Already a fan of skateboarding and drawing, the artist discovered Graffiti and Street Art at the age of 15 thanks to the specialized magazines Subway Art and Spraycan Art.
After studying design, he began working as a freelance illustrator and developed his street activity at the same time. His work draws on American comics, notably Matt Baker, Jack Kamen and John Romita. His style is recognizable by the use of pop art imagery, reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein or even Andy Warhol, featuring images of icons like Marylin Monroe or the Queen of England. His works focus on society’s obsession with celebrities and overconsumption in a dark and satirical way. The aim of his work is "to encourage people not only to see, but also to look at what surrounds them, to rethink the stereotypes of our culture, not to remain passive in the face of the reign of ostentatious consumption", D-Face.
His frescoes depict very expressive female or male figures, often accompanied by a commentary or a thought. They seem to be taken from a page of an American comic book and can be seen in Barcelona, New York, Tokyo, Miami and Los Angeles, among others.
