Kid Acne, a UK-based artist, illustrator, print-maker, and emcee, was born in Lilongwe, Malawi, in 1978 and currently lives and works in Sheffield, England. Kid Acne's unique aesthetic, which he developed during his formative years of writing graffiti, self-publishing fanzines, and making experimental hip-hop, is a culmination of these interests. He has translated this into numerous graphics, product designs, installations, animations, and silk screen editions. He is a stalwart of the international street art movement and has painted large-scale murals across continents, exploring various themes in his art, from colloquialisms and typography to fantasy, mythology, and architecture. His work is seen globally from wheat-pastes in North America to museum walls in Western Australia, and his images have adorned campaigns for some of the world's leading brands. Kid Acne has had numerous solo exhibitions and has participated in group exhibitions worldwide.
