Kid Acne

Kid Acne - Profile

Kid Acne is an artist, illustrator, print-maker and emcee.

He was born in Malawi back in 1978 and now lives in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in the UK.

He spent his early years writing graffiti, self-publishing fanzines & making experimental hip-hop (designing & printing the record sleeves by hand).

Kid Acne paints large-scale murals across the globe and has exhibited extensively over the past twenty years.   

Rendered in a distinct, illustrative style, Kid Acne’s work can be seen around the world; from wheat-pastes in the US, to museum walls in Australia. Kid Acne’s images have been seen on various products for many leading brands, while the man himself continues to create epic slogans in the backstreets of South Yorkshire.

And he still has acne.
