F*Face, who just opened his new solo exhibition at Stolen Space Gallery, spent a few days painting this wonderful mural titled “Guilty Pleasures” at Commercial street in Shoredicht.
Who better than the artists himself to explain his work:
“My work reflects our popular culture encompassing the American dream and the ideal of good triumphing over evil, no longer relevant in today’s society where the ‘invade now and ask questions later’ philosophy isn’t tolerated or indeed wanted. Colliding cultures are no longer receptive to the American way, the Superhero’s triumph of good over evil as portrayed through the political circus is now decoded through the eyes of different cultures,weary and wary of the sub-plot played in today’s political climate where warequals brand invasion”.
