Neck Face - Simply The Worst
SIMPLY THE WORST
13 Jul 2012 to 21 Jul 2012
Neck Face exhibited alongside those considered most influential in American street culture in MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibition. The event reintroduced the performer in Neck Face, whose portrayal of a down and out alley dweller brought him the first mention in the New York Times review of the graffiti and street art retrospective. His Halloween show openings have become notable charades celebrating the lurid and the ghastly complete with a haunted house entrance staged along with his family.
Neck Face’s aptitude for multi-media has also been seen in the production of metal masks, paper-mache sculptures and film. For this unique character and international figure of street culture, the true triumph lies in the pure harmony between his examination of the villain, the rogue and the nightmare and his unfaltering wit and fresh approach. Neck Face’s unmistakable illustrative style is maintained in the expansion of his medium to silk screened prints.
