D*Face Zombie Oscars

D*Face recently put up two “Zombie Oscars” in Hollywood over the weekend before the big ceremony.  In an interview with NBC News L.A. he states his reasoning behind the display:

“The Oscar ceremony represent the pinnacle of superficiality within the so-called “film industry,” where formula and money triumphs over independent creativity and risk. These sculptures are donated to all the actors, actresses and filmmakers of the City of Lost Angels whose talents will never see the light of day. Never give up the struggle, believe in your dreams, try and break the system and remember if all else fails, resort to plastic surgery…” – D*Face

D*Face The Queen

D*Face adds a face to the anarchy that was the G20 protest in London last week.

“London based street artist D*Face, gets up digitally at the G20 summit in London. He threw up a few images of currency (The queens image) and added a bit of social commentary. The verdict is still out on whether or not he purchased the electronic billboard space, or hacked it.” – Guerilla One
