In Kid Acne’s own words:
“I fell in love with screen printing as a teenager. I was living with my Dad at the time and we both decided to do an evening class at the local community centre. I'd just finished my GCSE's and was starting a BTec in Art & Design. For me, the entire process and aesthetic was exactly what I'd been looking for and it was a great way for us to spend some quality time together.
Twenty five years on (and partly thanks to my Dad's encouragement to “never get a proper job"), screen printing remains integral to my studio practice and is a huge part of my life as a professional artist.
Despite being an incredible inspirational and creative soul, my Dad suffered with a series of mental health issues throughout his life. He became alcohol dependent and after decades of self-medicating, sadly passed away in 2015 due to cirrhosis. The following year, I decided to quit drinking and became a patron of @_project6_ with the view of helping raise money and awareness to support families and individuals experiencing similar struggles.
We have recently teamed up with another local organisation, @printedbyus to create a limited edition screen print, aptly titled STICK TO THE PLAN - available exclusively from printedbyus.org. All proceeds go directly to @_project6_ and @printedbyus.”
