UK street artist D*Face talks advertising, skating, and punk rock


Liz Ohanesian of the LA Weekly, who is a former Boing Boing guestblogger, shares with us an interview she just did with D*Face, in which the British street artist talks about advertising, punk rock, anonymity and more. LA Weekly photog Shannon Cottrell did a slideshow as well, documenting his latest mural, which went up on the side of Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, where his solo show opens this weekend.


  1. The pic above looks nice, but also way too derivative. Equal parts Charles Burns and Roy L, but nothing new.

  2. the entirety of human output, ‘art’ especially, is nothing new.

    as for it being WAY too derivative ya that seems to be what people tolerate these days.. short term memories and all.

  3. People like familiar things. Popular usually equates with familiar. US politics (in general) hasn’t changed much from the late 50’s-early 60’s, why should the preference in art? I’m not being nasty here, just observing. I know the ‘coasts’ are different, but not too different.
