Kid Acne

May 18, 2009

Bio MC and graffiti writer, Kid Acne, was born in Malawi in 1978, grew up in England and is currently based in Sheffield. His career as an artist began with an appearance on the UK’s Rolf’s Cartoon Club at the age of twelve and within a year, he’d started painting graffiti and was in the hospital recovering from a bad acid trip. Neither incident was related to Rolf in any way.

Since then, he has gone on to design record sleeves, skateboards and apparel for some of the most prominent companies on the planet in his signature ‘Blood & Sand’ aesthetic. He has exhibited in galleries throughout the world and his work can be found in the streets of Sao Paulo, Vienna and Brooklyn. He doesn’t use stencils in his art and he still has acne.
