D*FACE exhibited in Los Angeles for the first time with his new body of work entitled “Going Nowhere Fast” at Corey Helford Gallery, in Los Angeles on April 9th. The street artist greeted fans on opening night with a bleeding Oscars red-carpet and zombie crew of characters, making his impression felt before one even entered the gallery. D*FACE’s “characters”, such as walking-dead versions of Michael Jackson and Andy Warhol, are based on his work which morbidly references pop culture icons with styles like Warhol’s silkscreen portraits, Roy Lichtenstein’s comic book aesthetic, and Keith Haring’s geometric shapes.
The exhibition also boasts a variety of mediums and found objects such as skulls, insects, collage, silkscreen, sculpture, a light installation (spreading from floor to ceiling) and a mural wrapping the Corey Helford building. “Going Nowhere Fast” is a collection of commentary by D*FACE on celebrity and our inevitable mortality, and edgy new look at his street art… in your face. – Caro
