“Blue For You” completed project with Dean D*FACE Stockton. Located at 139 S. Beverly Drive. Beverly Hills, 90210. This project was unanimously approved by the City of Beverly Hills Planning Commission and Architectural Review Board.
Artist Bio: An integral figure in the world of Urban Contemporary Art, Dean Stockton (AKA D*Face) has been painting the streets of London and beyond since the very earliest days of the genre. With a career that has spanned well over two decades of murals, solo shows and public sculpture his work is instantly distinguished as an iconic staple of British Urban Contemporary Art. Citing California skate culture and the punk / pop aesthetic as his earliest influences, D*Face was initially inspired to follow a path of graphic design and illustration, before eventually taking a more freelance approach to his art. After learning to screen print his own stickers, he took the public domain of the street as his canvas, blending art, design and street art in a manner that few had explored previously. It was in this freshly founded outlet that Stockton quickly gained attention from others for the clean, vivid nature of his designs that quickly spread across the city. In terms of artistic and cultural collaborations, Dean Stockton has worked on countless projects with the likes of Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Blink-182 and Triumph Motorcycles, just to name a few.
Artist Statement: These tightly configured images often leave a lot of interpretation up to the viewer, to question what might be running through the mind of the mysterious female figure as she gazes back out at us. Romantic longing and desire are certainly strong themes of this work and we are made to question who or what might this secretive individual be thinking about as she reclines below the glow of a haze-covered moon?
