StolenSpace Gallery is proud to present ‘Misprints & Misfits’, a series of one off paper pieces by D*Face. Delving into the deepest depths of D*Face’s print archives, it does as it says on it’s sticky print tin, showcasing unseen paper pieces, one offs, proofs, misprints and editions never before released.

D*Face claims that Screen printing changed his life, “From the first Andy Warhol canvases I saw, to the moment I walked into Surrey Skateboards and was hit by the heady smell of screen-printed decks, to the first envelope that arrived from Shepard Fairey stuffed full of OBEY stickers, or the first time I got all the magic ingredients right in the witch’s cauldron of home screen printing, and printing my first sticker sheet. “

“I have always been fascinated by the process, which in its simplest form is a very basic method of mass print production, practically the lowest rung on the ladder of printing (just after potato printing), and achievable to anyone willing to invest in the small amount of money and time needed to learn the dark art. At the same time, it is revered as the top of the printing food chain and carries with it a trade and skill that is forever being honed by master printers. It can be deeply frustrating to people trying to achieve print perfection, but liberating to those who embrace the beauty of misprints and repetition.”
