Bigface is a self-taught artist working in collage. Using source material culled from a wide range of printed media (magazines, photographs, newspapers, packaging, greeting cards), he creates dense worlds that reflect his environment and experience. For this exhibition, Bigface creates new work from a collection of images that have been under scrutiny and contention for issues of infringement, including work by Shepard Fairey, Richard Prince, Sherrie Levine, Banksy, Andy Warhol, Glen E. Friedman, and many others, adding another layer of complexity to the issue of image appropriation.
