D*Face – Artist and Motorcycle Rider
A few weeks ago, I published a post that featured images of a mural by D*Face, which I had seen while riding through the city of Richmond, Virginia.

The 2015 mural features the phrase Nothing Lasts Forever. Is there any greater truth than that?
D*Face’s personal style and iconography resonate with me. It has elements of visually carrying the Roy Lichtenstein torch into the future.
D*Face in Las Vegas
On New Year’s Eve-eve in 2016, I was on a motorcycle trip that brought me into Las Vegas for a few nights. It was then that I also saw one of his murals, 2014’s Love Forever at Freemont and 7th St. while I was walking around a very rainy downtown Las Vegas.
D*Face in Brooklyn
D*Face mural as part of Coney Art Walls in Coney Island, Brooklyn – Date with Death, from 2018:
Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, the grounds where the walls are on display is closed off. I had to shoot a photo through a chainlink fence.
In August and September, while on excursions around Brooklyn, I also saw the 2016 D*Face mural Till Death Do Us Part at the corner of Wyckoff Ave & Troutman in Bushwick, and 2018’s Save the World in Greenpoint on Eagle St & McGuinness at the end of the Pulaski Bridge.
It’s a bummer to see tags painted over the pieces.
Motorcycle & Car Collabs
While researching the artist and his works on his website, I read about his collaboration with Triumph Motorcycles. It turns out the artist is also a motorcycle rider. Double win! Incredible artist and motorcyclist.
I knew I liked that guy 🙂
