D*Face is an associate of famous British street artist Banksy and is one of the most prolific urban artists os his generation. He continues to deface the world using a variety mediums and techniques. His dysfunctional family of characters satirizes everything that fails. Anytime an artist is put in the same sentence with Banksy, they're automatically thrown on a pedestal. Being that is it may, D Face artist is different from Banksy's and has its own unique style. If I was to compare his work to anyone, it would be famous pop art legend Roy Lichtenstein.

Who Is D Face?
D Face is a multidisciplinary artist who is well-known in Britain. He has also been influenced by New York City's subway graffiti culture. D*Face works across many mediums and techniques and employs a group of dysfunctional characters to mock and take over everything that isn't theirs. This provides a welcome dose of humour in today's media-dominated world. His goal is to get the public to see and to think about the world around them. Rethinking, editing, and subverting imagery from decades of materialistic consumerism.
His goal is to get the public to see beyond what they are seeing. He uses imagery taken from currency, advertising and comic books to subvert these iconic motifs, cultural figures, and genres to make a comment on our conspicuous society. His work can be found in a variety media, and he is the only urban artist featured on the Art Review front cover.
