KID ACNE "RHYTHM IS A DANCER"

NEWSText: mariko takei

StolenSpace Gallery will exhibit a new body of work from renowned UK street artist Kid Acne. Featuring paintings on board and canvas, installation work and also the release of a limited edition fanzine and print. This exhibition explores the relationship between graffiti and smoking by way of introducing us to a new set of characters known as ‘Art Fags’ – a play on words neatly personifying packs of cigarettes. Both pastimes are seen as rebellious and cool, which makes them particularly appealing to teenagers. Though through repetition they become a compulsion, cause serious problems in our adult life and are “filthy habits” hard to quit.
