His work quickly gained recognition in the UK and internationally when he started pasting his eye catching logo and art pieces around London. His reputation is rapidly rising sell out solo shows and group show features in Australia and the USA. In our selfie-obsessed world, the face has become a brand, a product to be marketed and promoted. The face we put out there has been carefully crafted to evoke desire, to seduce, to sell a fantasy. Bareface strips his images from their original context, and playfully reworks them in a way that forces us to focus on nothing but the face. And while we stare at his portraits, they look back at us, with an acted confidence and false sexuality, slowly revealing its lie. An unsettling blank canvas that invites you to fantasise your own image of him. Allowing you to customise his face to your liking and thus creating the perfect product.

What we loved most about the show aside from some pretty sick art was the added originality. The LAIDBARE exhibition had an interactive illustrative demo where people who had come to support could get involved with the exhibition and show their own artistic side. Another great thing to come from the collab was this cheeky little piece that Bareface created especially for Amigos. Using the Amigos bottles to make a wicked headdress and our bottle taking centre stage in the piece it was a cool way to tie us personally to the exhibition. The frame is hand painted and also features our logo which we massively appreciate and it will hang proudly forever in our office. Check below to find out some extra details about BareFace. The people I was fanatic about growing up had an air of mystery about them, they had a sense of awe and wonder. Nowadays we live in a world where being accessible aids your success. We are in a sharing culture, putting everything out there for the world to see.
Street Art Showcase: Bareface
There we met artist Bareface , the man behind the solo show. We were eager to find out more about his exuberant pop art style, so caught up for a chat. Croydonist: We very much enjoyed your exhibition last month. Can you talk us through how you came to mix street art with pop art? Bareface: As a child, I was obsessed with American pop culture. I spent countless hours in front of the TV watching American cartoons, action packed TV shows and reading comic books. My favourite movies, musical styles and pop stars were American and when I would role play with my action figures it would be in an American accent, so you could say I was americanised from a very young age. When I started to explore my artistic side in school, naturally it was influenced by these very things that sparked my creativity, so you could say I was always making pop art.
I do try to send little texts or call when I have time but not as much as he'd like. Is there even any sex at all in this fantasy. I'm keeping myself occupied with my kid, work but I wonder if my career will ever take precedence. Many Mormon girls place the cart before the horse. Mormons are very particular about dressing. So we'll drink the beer I brought over and I give him a back massage and go down on him luckily he does return the favor in terms of physical stuff when he 's less tired and we have amazing sex. Since moving and starting residency, he has done a complete - no resemblance to the man I fell in love with. Stop trying to make up for all the little things you miss with big short-term things. And if you do belong to a ward full of cretins, you must do everyone a favor and just ignore them until they go extinct.
