Kid Acne: The Return

May 6, 2014
Asja Nastasijevic is an Art Historian with the major in Modern Art. She's involved in art writing and criticism for several years now. Art is her passion and writing about it is both work and pleasure. Among modern art movements she loves Fauvism, Abstract Expressionism, and POP ART and her favorite artists are Henri Matisse, Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol. She fell in love with Street Art when she first saw ROA’s Sleepy Pigs in Brussels few years ago. Since then, she devotedly explores this form of artistic expression. She hates when someone asks her whether the street art is a real art. What makes any art a real art? Art is an evolutionary act with constant changes in its performance. In Asja’s opinion, the real art is what you want to hang on the walls of your living room, as simple as that. So she wants to hang the works of Ron English, Gaia and ROA above her TV cabinet or to place the artworks of Mark Jenkins and Isaac Cordal next to her sofa. She enjoys bowling and doodling.

Kid Acne’s career has spanned many years covering different artistic expressions. He is a graffiti writer, illustrator, print-maker and a hip hop musician. Whether it is an illustration, slogan or lyrics, for Kid Acne they are just different sides of the same way of communication. Nothing has really changed since he started painting graffiti years ago. It’s all part of the same thing and it’s constantly evolving as a body of work. Kid Acne is a true storyteller in any medium.

Sneak Peak

We bring you some sneak peak pictures of the exclusive screen prints that will be exhibited in the Galo Art Gallery and a short teaser video:

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.
