"This character is taken from my most recent series of Stabby Women ‘wheat-pastes’ - an ongoing, international campaign for the past decade. I’ve pasted this particular design in the streets of Paris as well as my hometown, Sheffield. Over the years, the Stabby Women have invaded the streets of New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Melbourne, Berlin, Venice, Milan, Zurich, Barcelona, Munich, Vienna and many more...
This is my 5th edition with 1xRun and by far the most ambitious to date. As with the other releases, I have hand-printed these myself, however I usually stay within the relative comfort zone of 1 - 3 colors. This time we’ve gone for a 6 color design, all of which are hand-embellished with india ink. There is also a 2nd color variation (with more hand-customization) as well as 2 originals, collaged onto reclaimed wood. It’s been a pretty labor intensive process, but I’m really happy with how the whole set has turned out.
I probably spent 2 or 3 weeks in the studio making this series of work. Since the last edition with 1xRun, I’ve gained more experience as a print-maker. As well as making numerous prints for other artists and designers, I’ve also taught screen print workshops at Sheffield Institute of Arts and spent a year working as a print technician at the Royal Collage of Art in London. Aside from the multiple layers, I’ve chosen inks and paper stock, which I feel compliment the image and add a higher level of production value compared to my previous work.
There are tons of artists releasing print editions these days, but I’d say there are very few who are printing the artwork themselves, or
who have invested interest in the screen printing process. If you’re looking for a signature piece made 100% by the artist, this print is for you." - Kid Acne
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
is something of a modern day renaissance man. Artist, illustrator, print-maker and sometimes, MC. His formative years were spent painting graffiti, making fanzines and releasing DIY punk/hip-hop records from his bedroom in an East Midlands backwater. In the late 90’s his work was first published in the now seminal Scrawl tome, which documented the conversion of counter culture illustration, skateboard graphics and left-field graffiti as a kind of precursor to what is now widely recognised as a 'Street Art' aesthetic.
While studying Fine Art in Sheffield, his work gained the attention of WARP Records executives who commissioned him to illustrate album sleeves for Plaid back in 1999. At the turn of the millennium, his work began to appear as the backdrop for major club nights and in style magazines throughout the UK. His illustrations have now adorned products for leading brands, such as Levis, Prada and Kenzo whilst his inimitable art can be seen throughout the globe, in wheat-pastes, murals and gallery shows from Beijing to Azerbaijan.
He is currently working on a series of short animations for Channel 4, for which he also provides the voice of the lead character, Zebra Face along with a cast of British talent, such as Roots Manuva and Jarvis Cocker.
...and he still has acne.
