The 348 page glossy doorstopper catalogues D*Face’s – real name Dean Stockton – rise to notoriety from the early days of street art to selling work for up to £60,000.

He is the owner and curator of the Outside Institute, London’s first contemporary art gallery to focus on street art, now called the Stolen Space Gallery.
