Album Covers and Pizza Boxes
While studying Fine Art in Sheffield, Kid Acne’s work gained the attention of WARP Records executives who commissioned him to illustrate the sleeve for Plaid’s Rest Proof Clockwork LP in 1999. At the turn of the millennium, his work began to appear as the backdrop for major UK club nights and in style magazines throughout Europe, as well as customizing everything from knitwear in Yorkshire to pizza boxes in Paris. His art can be seen throughout the globe, in wheat-pastes, murals and gallery shows.
