Kid Acne

BORN – Lilongwe, Malawi 1978
LIVES & WORKS – Sheffield, England
Kid Acne is a painter, print-maker, illustrator and emcee.
His formative years were spent writing graffiti, self-publishing fanzines and making experimental Hip-Hop. The culmination of these interests informed the development of his own unique aesthetic, which he has translated into innumerable graphics, product designs, installations, animations and silk screen editions.

A stalwart of the international Street Art movement, Kid Acne has painted large-scale murals across continents and exhibited extensively in museums and galleries throughout the world over the past two decades. His art explores a variety of themes, including typography, fantasy, mythology and architecture. His work has adorned campaigns for some of the world’s leading brands, while the man himself continues to paint epic slogans on the backstreets of Sheffield.

And he still has acne.
