Streets: D*Face // Dictador Art Masters (Columbia)

Recently in Columbia, D*Face (interviewed) participated in the first Dictador Art Masters event along a international roster of street artists.

Openings: D*Face – ‘Fornever’ @ Galerie Itinerrance (Paris)

After painting a large new mural Turn Coat (covered) in the 13th District of Paris, D*Face (interviewed) unveiled his first solo show in France at Galerie Itinerrance. Entitled FORNEVER, the exhibition presented canvasses, sculptures, installations, HPMs, prints, and more. The British artist also experimented with a new medium – ‘Memory Trays’ – assemblages of found objects to bring a narrative dimension to his portraits.
