"This particular piece comes from a series of recent Stabby Women wheat-pastes. I thought this one stood out amongst the others so I adapted it to work as a print. I prefer the print to the wheat-paste in fact.
I’m not really sure how each piece fits in, but it all contributes to an ongoing body of work, which started when I began painting these sorts of characters around on abandoned buildings around 10 - 15 years ago. The Stabby Women are a tribe of nomadic female warriors who form part of a larger matriarchy society with their own belief system, gods and mythology." - Kid Acne
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Kid Acne and 1xRUN.
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.
