world, the face has become a brand, a product to be marketed and promoted. The face we put out there has been carefully crafted to evoke desire, to seduce, to sell a fantasy. This stark observation is the inspiration behind Bareface’s work, a series of illustrated portraits and reworked images of famous faces. Bareface strips his images from their original context, and playfully reworks them in a way that forces us to focus on nothing but the face. And while we stare his portraits, they look back at us, with an acted confidence and false sexuality, slowly revealing its lie. Bareface’s most striking image might actually be his self portrait. An unsettling blank canvas that invites you to fantasise your own image of him. Allowing you to customise his face to your liking and thus creating the perfect product.

Bareface is a London born artist with an obsession with Pop Culture, Pop Art and Street Art. His work quickly gained recognition in the UK and internationally when he started pasting his eye catching logo and art pieces around London. This earned him a place in the Global Graffiti and Street Art collective and The Secret Society of Super Villian Artists (SSOSVA). Bareface is also a member of the local community based creative group Heath Collective. His reputation is rapidly rising with various shows in the UK, Australia and the US in the past two years. Street Pop will be Bareface’s first solo show which has toured across London. #streetpop opens on Saturday 8th August at 6pm and closes Sunday 4th October 2015.

About the gallery
The gallery at Matthews Yard was formed in May 2014 to deliver and make accessible local art to the Croydon community. Located  in Matthews Yard, Old Town.

During this time, it has been hugely successfull, selling over 50 local pieces and regularly covered online, the citizen and croydon radio. The gallery is curated by descART.es (http://descART.es). If you are a local artist and wish to get your work out there, get in touch. We are always on the hunt for a young Emin.

We are just finishing the refurbishment. This new exhibition is the perfect chance to see the revamped space after a two-month hiatus.
