Having travelled the globe painting murals for festivals, events and shows London gets its very own mural by London based artist D*Face. Despite living here in the city, the artists busy schedule has kept him in his London studio and we have not seen much large scale works from the artist as a result. An while the cities street furniture is plastered East to West with D*face stickers, the last London street piece from the artist that we recall seeing was a piece that coincided with an issue launch of VNA magazine on Commercial Street last year.
Working over a number of days this new East London Rebels mural from the artist has been painted on one of the large Sclater Street walls, a stones throw from Shoreditch Overground Station and right outside the recently launched space Rebels Alliance.
Formed in 2012 by D*Face and two old friends of his, first as a online space and more recently opening a physical space in Shoreditch, Rebels Alliance is a place for them to 'combine their love of good coffee, building motorbikes, clothing and motorcycle related artwork, all under one leaking roof!'
They launched the Shoreditch space in December 2015 with a show featuring new works from artist Will Barras, which are currently still on show in the shop. If you are in the neighbourhood checking out the new mural from D*Face be sure to stop into the space, have a coffee and check out the Will Barras artwork. Rebels Alliance also have a selection of other D*Face x Rebels Alliance tees and other products for sale at the space including D*Face recently released sticker packs.
Rebels Alliance and the new D*Face mural is located at 64 Sclater Street, East London, E1 6HR.
