ABOUT THIS ART

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 Inch Black Wood Frame Float Mounted w/ UV-Glass, foam core backing & ready to hang hardware.


"This piece is my interpretation of what an ancient 'Stabby Woman' Sphinx might look like. This particular design is inspired by the Babylonian Sphinx although I made the character female as I'm interested in the idea of ancient Matriarchal societies from pre history. The original drawing is a simple sketch, which I output over twice the size in order to create the edition. I like working with small illustrations in this way. Somehow, making them bigger irons out the imperfections and creates a nice line quality. It gives the image impact and authority whilst retaining the immediacy of the initial idea.

This has been an ongoing theme in my work. I’m interested in lost civilizations and forgotten knowledge. I’m particularly inspired by the writings and theories of people such Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval and John Anthony West." - Kid Acne

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Kid Acne and 1xRUN.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Kid Acne 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.
