Kid Acne become the latest artist to participate in Street Art London and Village Underground’s Wall Project with one of his signature slogans – OH MY DAYS. Acne’s piece cements Sheffield’s early domination of the Wall since he follows fellow Sheffield based artist Phlegm onto the wall. Working in brutally cold conditions Kid Acne managed to get the piece up over three days and even had time to put up some signature Art Fags on the carriage ends atop the wall with Dscreet.
This latest piece represents the next step on the way to establishing the most prestigious street art wall in the world in the heart of Shoreditch. Each month or so Street Art London and Village Underground will invite a leading street artist to the Wall. For all the info on the project head over HERE.
