Bio-

*BORN* – Lilongwe, Malawi 1978

 

*LIVES & WORKS* - Sheffield, England

 

Kid Acne is a UK-based artist, illustrator, print-maker and emcee.

 

His formative years were spent writing graffiti, self-publishing fanzines

and making experimental hip-hop – invariably designing and printing the

record sleeves by hand.

 

The combination of these interests informed the development of his own

unique aesthetic, first documented in the seminal *Scrawl* tome

(Booth-Clibborn Editions, 1999).

 

A stalwart of the international Street Art movement, Kid Acne has painted

large-scale murals across continents and exhibited extensively over the

past two decades.

 

In 2011, *Museums Sheffield* hosted the first comprehensive retrospective

of his work, attracting over 50,000 visitors.

 

Rendered in a distinct illustrative style, his art explores a variety of

themes from colloquialisms and typography to mythology and architecture.

Most notable however, are his depictions of a self-realised tribe of

enigmatic female warriors known as *Stabby Women. *

 

Kid Acne’s work can be seen throughout the globe; from wheat-pastes in

Melbourne, to gallery shows in Los Angeles, murals in South Yorkshire and

animations online.

 

And he still has acne
