The artist D*Face, is a London-based street artist known worldwide for his walls and works. D*Face calls his style 'aPOPcalyptic': on the one hand, he uses an extremely pop language, while on the other hand, he questions the stereotypical images of today's society. D*Dog, his iconic character with wings instead of ears inspired by the Peanuts cartoon from the 1980s, often appears in his works.

Dean Stockton, aka D*Face - street artist known internationally - was born in 1978 in London, the city where he received his artistic training. From the very beginning of his career, the artist has been inspired by American culture, ranging from skateboarding to punk-rock music.
Pop Art, Lichtenstein, the world of comics and cartoons constitute important reference points for the realisation of his works. D*Face, in fact, proposes a unique style, defined by himself as 'aPOPcalyptic', precisely because, despite referring to a pop imagery, he prompts the viewer to reflect on the alienation typical of contemporary society. One of the main themes of his poetics is precisely criticism of consumer society, from which he takes idealised and stereotyped representations to distort and question them.
The artist D*Face has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Europe, the United States and Asia and has created walls all over the world.
