BIOGRAPHY

A.CE is a London based artist. He has been a key figure in the UK street art scene for over 15 years. In that time his instantly recognisable wheat-pasted images have featured prominently across the urban landscape.

Drawing inspiration in part from Dada collage and classic pop art, to his time as a skateboarder and the bold graphics he encountered during this time, his work is a raw presentation of nostalgic imagery intuitively selected, blended and remixed with contemporary fragments, resulting in a new narrative with ambiguities and incongruities, humour and messages that reflect the absurdities of popular culture and a consumer driven society.

His art has been featured in a number of notable street art books and exhibited in galleries across the world, including London, Chicago and New York, with a solo show set for 2017 in Tokyo. His work has been commisioned by Stussy, The Big Issue, Reebok and Ace Hotel, and with growing popularity the value of his work has continued to increase, with works reaching record prices at recent auctions and shows.
