Kill your darlings

Known for his motley crew of bearded shoplifters, bondage dragons, northernisms, and a whole host of ‘stabby’ women, Sheffield-based street artist Kid Acne has captured the attention and smiles of Design Week for a while now.

Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery will be hosting a retrospective of our Kid’s work, featuring some new commissions, including sculpture, photography, fanzines, and, of course, graffiti. Here’s a sneak preview of some of the work that will be on display.
